Lake Murray
One of the perks of living at Weston is that you get to enjoy close access to Mission Trails Regional Park. Within the park is Lake Murray, a great spot for fishing, kayaking, bicycling, jogging, walking and picnicking. For a fun outdoor date, take a small boat or kayak out on the lake and watch the sunset over the water. Or spread out a blanket and enjoy a romantic picnic on the lake’s shores. If you’re looking for a more physical activity, the trail surrounding the lake is great for running or cycling.
