Lake Murray Community Park is also managed by the San Carlos Recreation Center and boasts a beautiful playground thanks to the efforts of the Lake Murray Playground Project and the City of San Diego Parks & Recreation Department's park planners. It has been a wonderful addition to the community, and any requested events at this park needs to be approved by the City. Please call the Recreation Center office and ask for the Center Director for any all questions and concerns regarding the Lake Murray Community Park and San Carlos Recreation Center.

Please see our Program Guide for a full list of our recreation offerings!

History of the Center
