La Mesa Eco Park is big and there are plenty of good areas where you can walk, run, bike or just sit around and have picnics. There are also stores that sell refreshments and food. The park entrance is cheap but the place is well-maintained except for the toilets. There is a pool but there are so many people all the time. They also encourage amateur Photographers to shoot here. I conducted a photography workshop here. Photographers can bring models and even portable lights, they allow that also with an additional cheap fee. If you're going to come here, make sure you apply ample amount of mosquito repellent and sunscreen.
