Comments: I thought this park would provide a quarter mile walk with a few trees and little more. Instead it provided some great stands of cacti and flowers to go along with a trail that, although short, provides a bit more of a workout than a typical hike and bike trail. I'll need to revisit the park at some point since I misplaced my GPS track file, so for now there's no trail map.
