We will take the Lake Anza challenge again. I say that because it is wonderful to paint at the lake but it is difficult painting, at least for me ,with all the shades of green and the reflection of the trees in the water.
It is also hard to give really good directions because there are many entrances to Tilden park. I usually go in at Spruce street. So I am giving you the Google map link to get directions to Lake Anza Just type in Lake Anza, Tilden Park and then you can get directions from you house. Once you are in the park there are a lot of signs that will help you find the lake.
You can also get a map from Google to Tilden Regional Park.
