Right near the Mission San Luis Park is this hidden quiet park. Large dog run areas are fenced, surrounded by lakes, trails and wooden walkways and bridges. Very quiet and peaceful area giving guests and visitors a chance to get away.

This is an excellent place for a picnic, as there are lots of tables available. There is also a covered pavilion and very nice bathrooms - real ones, not portable ones. We like to explore the trails and were delighted to find a new kiosk!...More
