This 11 acre park is largely undeveloped and contains one of the largest lakes within city limits.

The first parcel for this park was acquired in 1943. The path that encircles the lake is 2,789 feet in length (roughly half a mile).

PARK IMPROVEMENTS
The Park Board on resolution C21-06 Feb. 27, 2006, accepted a $100,000 payment from the Washington State Department of Transportation for future improvements at China Lake. As of 2016, Metro Parks hopes to make water quality and wetland improvements to the area.
