Whether it is enjoying one of four new city parks, an art-walk, a concert in the park or bowling at the city's new 48-lane, Vegas-style bowling alley, there is plenty to do in Lake Elsinore.
This has been a booming year for new recreational activities in Lake Elsinore. As the temperature soared, Southern California residents flock to enjoy water activities on the lake. Recently, more than a hundred families enjoyed the eighth annual Just For Kids fishing derby, sponsored by the city's parks and recreation and lake and aquatic resources departments. Aerial activities such as skydiving and hang gliding reinforce the city's new Dream Extreme brand.
The city's newest feather would be the Trevi Lanes Bowling Alley. With 48 lanes, 200 arcade games, an Italian restaurant, six private party rooms and eight private bowling lanes, it's no wonder that nearly 1,200 visitors a day enjoy this new attraction. On Friday and Saturday nights, the crowd early doubles as two dance floors complete with a DJ and live band start feeling the beat. The Trevi Entertainment Center is open Sunday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.
The city is ready to accommodate golfers with their first golf course. The Links at Summerly is the centerpiece of the Summerly master planned community. Summerly will offer an 18-hole links style golf course, clubhouse, recreation center and multi-purpose trails. Kidney shaped bunkers, and "Scottish" type burns will be found on every hole. Summerly is scheduled to open in late Fall 2007.
For those with a passion for art, downtown is the place to be on the fourth Friday of each month. The Elsinore Valley Arts Network (EVAN) offers Friday Night Art Walks that showcase the talent of local artists. Shops and restaurants stay open late to add to the ambiance of an evening stroll. Concertgoers will enjoy Music with a View, a free outdoor summer concert series featuring a variety of music from country to classical. Concerts take place in McVicker Park and concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets.
