  • Easy trails. Neat, interactive art installments. Decent amount of parking, picnic areas, circuit exercise equipment.
  • Beautiful views, nice area to spend the day. Park rangers are all very nice and helpful here.
  • There has been a large pool of water sitting in the walking trail for weeks next to the Harney Way, opposite to the Executive Park office building. Not sure if it is a water pipe leakage. Hope it will be fixed soon. It seems that parking lot is also a popular spot for illegal garbage dumping. People also clean cars there leaving litters on the ground instead of garbage cans there. CCTV cams or frequent policing ?
  • The stellar bird watching and views are only slightly diminished by a somewhat shady feel that makes it seem like it's not a good idea to come here alone.
  • I wanted to take my dog to a new park, but after making the drive out and driving up to the entrance I saw everything was dry. My girl is a foxtail magnet so we didn't even bother parking and went to another greener park.
