The City of Big Bear Lake owns, operates and maintains three beautiful parks within our city limits.
Boulder Bay Park
39080 Big Bear Blvd | Map
As you enter Big Bear Valley from Highway 18/330 Boulder Bay Park is one of the first sights you see. With a beautiful view, nestled among the boulders of Big Bear Lake, Boulder Bay Park offers picnic tables, a gazebo, open space and meandering trail and restroom facilities.
Launch a human-powered, hand-carried vessel from the shoreline for a relaxing day on the lake at this location. Acceptable vessels include Stand Up paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes following inspection and permitting from the Municipal Water District (MWD). Inspections and permits may be obtained from the MWD Office, the West and East boat launch ramps, or any commercial marina.

Just outside Big Bear Village Rotary Park also offers views of Big Bear Lake, restroom facilities, benches and additionally has a playground area for children. Launching of human-powered or hand-carried vessels is also permitted along the Rotary Park shoreline.
40870 Big Bear Blvd | Map
At the termination of the Knickerbocker Creek Trail looking across Big Bear Lake to the Discovery Center is a park echoing the Big Bear community’s dedication and respect to the members of our Armed Forces. As you enter Veteran’s Park through the Memorial Archway family markers serve as remembrances for former service members and the lakeside gazebo offers a location for reflection. Annually the Memorial Day Ceremony is held at Veteran’s Park.
All three of our parks are open to the public and are operated on a first come first serve, they cannot be booked for private events, however, the public is welcome to assemble in a large group at the park for a birthday or wedding if desired. Propane BBQs are permitted at City parks, but solid fuel BBQs (i.e. charcoal) are not permitted due to potential fire issues associated with improper hot charcoal disposal.
