A nice park to walk around. Great views and I can imagine how beautiful it must of been in the early years before freeways and buildings. Right near old town. Near Mission Hills which is also a beautiful area to live.

This was a lookout point of great military value and that can clearly be understood from the view. You could easily see a fleet or an army approaching. The grounds need work. It's a climb from old town that's worth the effort if you've got...More
