Very scenic. Nice place to ride a bike, walk or run. Very busy and crowded on weekends. Everyone is polite and tries to accommodate the needs of others.

Urban nature bliss and birdwatcher bonanza. Just steps away from home, find a span of trail to ride, run, or walk. Bring binoculars to feast your eyes on birds: red-tailed hawks, great blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets, black crowned night heron, green heron, mallards,...More

Hiking next to Lake Vasona is calming and peaceful. Nature, various birds, calm water, friendly people; what not to love. This beautiful atmosphere puts me in a meditative state of mind and centers me. Best time to hike during week days when it’s not crowded....More
