Lake Elizabeth: 450 Acres for Outdoor Recreation Near Avalon Union City

Fremont's sister city is located across an ocean. It's Elizabeth, Australia, the city for which Fremont's own Lake Elizabeth was named. The moniker was selected more than 50 years ago in 1960, the year that the lake was built not far from what would become Avalon Union City.

The 83-acre lake takes up part of the larger park's 450 acres, but it's space well spent since guests are welcome to fish along the banks of Lake Elizabeth. You can also take a stroll around the lake on a path that measures about 2 miles. Along the way, you'll probably run into various playground spots for youngsters, perhaps pass by the tennis courts and soccer fields, or glimpse any of the other athletic facilities at Lake Elizabeth. Regardless of the reason for your visit, you can always return to Lake Elizabeth for an awe-inspiring view.
