Agua Caliente Park
A true desert oasis, turned into a park!
There is ducks you can feed bread to, and lots of kids! There is neat nature and neat plants ~ I want to go again and have a picnic or a kid party there!
Driving to this park - you will think you are getting lost in the barren desert, when all of a sudden you come out into a lush, green, tropical oasis in the desert! This grass park, complete with warm spring fed ponds, palm trees, paved and sand walking trails is truly a beautiful place! In fact you can usually see painters viewing one of the ponds and recreating the landscape on their canvases.
This in-town park, has a natural warm springs (87 degrees), picnic areas, horseshoe pits and three ponds (fed by the warm springs). There has been archeological finds at the park that people have been living here as far back as 5000 years ago!
There are short trails around and to all three ponds, interpretive signs, a ranch house from the 1920’s in the 101 acre park. You can see a lot of birds and wildlife because of the constant water supply.
Another great activity - highly recommend this one - you won't be disappointed!
No fishing, hunting, horses, kites, boats or volleyball nets. No bikes (although they seem to make an exception for young kids).
