Stow Lake surrounds Strawberry Hill, an island with a waterfall. Much of the western portion of San Francisco can be seen from the top of this hill, which at its top contains one of the reservoirs that supply a network of high-pressure water mains that exclusively supply specialized fire hydrants throughout the city. Two bridges connect the inner island to the surrounding mainland. Along the side of the lake is the prominent Golden Gate Pavilion which was a gift from the city of Taipei, one of San Francisco's sister cities. The pavilion was meant as a confirmation of friendship between the two cities, and to commemorate the struggle and contribution of early Chinese settlers to California. It is said that Stowe Lake is haunted.
