Playa del Rey’s two lakes are at the center of our community’s unique lifestyle. The lakes may be used by all homeowners.

On the west side of the community is our 9.4 acre ski lake which is dedicated to a variety of water sports, including skiing, wake boarding, jet skiing, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

On the east side of the community is our catch-and-release fishing lake which is stocked with a variety of fish, including wide mouth bass and catfish. This is a non-motorized boating lake used for paddle boating.
