Stayed at a hotel across the lake and walked down to the lake's edge. It was nice (and very windy!!!) hanging out by the side of the lake, people watching. There are cement benches and a small road where people walk and bike.

Visiting the largest lake in the City of Seven Lakes is a must-do. Just come here for the view, but not much to do around the area. You can rent a bike and tour around the lake, but I think some of it are unsafe so just choose a good one. You can also picnic on one part of the... More

When you want a change of view, without going too far out of the city proper, try Sampaloc Lake. With the improvements made by the city government, you can just sit on the newly constructed benches and just enjoy the view-the quit lake with the mountain as a backdrop.

Picturesque urban lake, spoiled by too much rubbish dumped in the water. We hired bikes for 20 Pesos each and cycled right around the lake. Lots of food and drink vendors to provide post-cycling refreshment, lots of beggars too. Nonetheless, a pleasant place to be - and the circumference road makes for a most pleasant bike ride. Watch the bikes... More

I don't know how exactly they can keep this lake clean given that it is surrounded by the city. A limiting of the garbage or untreated water spilling into it would be a start. The townsfolk don't know how lucky they are to have a lake in their town. Just imagine if one can catch fish in this lake or... More

When I first visited this place, I was mesmerised by how peaceful and quiet the community is. I love coming back to this place. An excellent place to be alone and unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life.

I have grown watching this place transform.. From a place where we buy Tilapia before it became a leisure area for most of the locals... More
