One of the parks in Riverside. Open all year to everybody. Start on the dirt trail on Big Springs Road. Take the left turn at the fork in the trail, and head back to the back of the park. Veer to the right along the railroad tracks, and turn right to get back to the start.
This park is a peaceful area for walking and running. Definitely a great place to take the dog. There isn't any play equipment for kids, but an adventurous trail along the train tracks at the base of the hills should keep their attention. There are several trails that continue up through the hills if you desire more of a challenge, just bring some water. This is a great place for birdwatching, and offers a great view of the city. Not recommended for strollers, due to soft sand.
