Unique Features and Landscape

The park offers open green space with a variety of native and exotic tree species, based on 19th century Victorian park design concepts.

The park has a variety of facilities that provide recreation opportunities for different age groups: an outdoor theater, exercise stations, skate park, lake and walking path, and playground.

The park offers scheduled activities for multiple age groups: Folklorico dance, salsa, and ballet.

Drinking Fountains

Drinking fountains were functional and in good condition.

Park Cleanliness

Part of the park lies underneath a freeway.  There appeared to be some gas tanks under the freeway.  This section of the park was dark, and thus, seemed unsafe.  There was no park personnel presence around the park; they stayed in the recreation center.

There were makeshift houses along the edge of the park next to the freeway.  One corner of the walking path had a significant amount of bulk item trash.

There was litter around the park with a lot of trash in the section under the freeway.  There was some graffiti throughout the park.

Portions of the lake edge were in despair and falling into the lake.

 

Water Conservation

Areas of the lawn had standing water.  There were some distressed trees.  The lawn had some dried grass and dirt patches.

Restrooms

The field restrooms were dirty and poorly stocked, although the indoor restroom was clean and functional.

Facility Features

A lake with a walking path around its border.  An outdoor theater, lake, bridge, exercise stations, playground, skate park, barbecue pits, children’s play area, and picnic tables
