This was a delightful surprise. An Oasis in the dessert with lake, palm trees, some wonderful birds and a bit of wildlife. I loved the dozens of turtles sunning on a big log near the bridge. We saw a few white and blue herons. Lots of pic nick spots and nice walking trails. but don't go on a Monday or Tuesday because the visitors center, ranch and art gallery are closed. The walking and hiking trails are in the back of the pic nick area and parking lot. Some areas are closed off now because people do not respect the fauna. Be sure to bring your camera.
