  • Wonderful location, long paths, quiet. This place is very meditative and serene. You can almost always find a rabbit or two on a walk. There is a slight littering problem, but nothing a little willpower cant fix! As of my writing this a park cleaning event is fast approaching! Overall a great place to be! ๐Ÿ‘
  • This is one of our favorite places to visit. Multiple peaceful trails, bridges, educational information to read, and wildlife and nature to observe (both in the day and at night). The moon walks are excellent, as well as the astronomy club's telescopes.Morning strolls with children, family, and friends are so nice. You wouldn't know you are right in the middle of central Lancaster. And how great that the preserve's expansion project will protect more Joshua trees and wildlife. We love seeing the birds, rabbits, and vegetation.There is also a great picnic area and educational center. Such a great place!
