There was a variety of trails, and we only explored a little bit...our trail took us under the overpass and past these big fun murals. Near the entrance was a pond with tons of enormous fish. Towards the butterfly habitat there were little wooden animal cutouts in the brush so visitors can know what wildlife to expect. We saw bunnies and lizards and birds and butterflies. It wasn't busy, there was plenty of parking, and we want to go back! We did see a lot of trash off far trail, and that was annoying. Maybe someone could do an eagle project cleanup or something. We took our baby in his stroller and the paved path was perfect for that.
