Great place to visit whether you are a local or a visitor. This place is a hidden gem and wonderful oasis of raptors and caring people who take care of them.

We took a 5 hour sail on the Bay of Banderas in a 20 passenger boat. Spotted mama whales & babies, porpoises, enjoyed lovely snacks,, lunch, cocktails, & a lovely beach stop doe snorting & swimming. Mellow, not a crazy party atmosphere, yet fun.

This was one of the best places to watch Track & Field. It reminded me of the old White City in London, England. Unfortunately it is no more. It has been demolished so that a much more modern structure can be built. I for one...More

Historic Hayward Field is the site of a new world record almost every year. More sub-four minute miles have been run here than anywhere. Be there!

we can all hope that the next version of Hayward may be even better -- e.g., just a bit more leg room would be nice

Really...this is Track Town USA. This is where Prefontaine ran. This is where Nike was born. Half the sports venues around here, and the law school, are named after Phil Knight. If you don't know who he is then you don't know anything about athletics....More

Last time I checked, it's open for anyone to run around as long as there's no official school event, class, or some bigger happening going on. I used to run around on it all the time.

Don't plan on bringing anything into the venue. They want you to purchase "extras" from them, i.e. food/beverages. Best to leave the extras in your vehicle or at home, so you don't have to take them back if refused entry.
