family reunion


April 6, 2012 (Santee) -- Santee Lakes is getting a facelift on Lakes 1 and 5. The park is replacing three old picnic/gazebo structures and an outdated playground with new up‐to‐date structures. This will give visitors an opportunity to picnic in a beautiful setting and will add much needed shade, especially during the summer months.
Padre Dam’s Board of Directors and the Director of Park and Recreation for Santee Lakes break ground on the construction site for the new three‐tiered gazebo.
