As said previously, paved trail in a park around a little lake. Lots of geese poop. Not very scenic, but fine for a quick walk. The dog park looks really nice.

It’s a paved trail, easy run. There are about 100-200 meters of birds poop near the pond. There would be sprinklers near the pond at about 5:30am to 6:00am. It’s better to run past 6:00 am when it’s not too hot, some of the poop are washed out and there are no geese around. Around sunset and in the afternoon, you’d encounter geese that could bite and run after you. It’s warm in the afternoon. I feel safe running here. When you park inside the south parking lot, remember that the gates close in the dusk. I was lock out once, have to wait till morning to get my car out. There are bathrooms and water fountains near the parking lot.

I don't know why the description says it's near Elverta, I take my dog here occasionally for walks when I want to be close to home, early mornings or if it's not hot. It's mostly a sidewalk to go around the loop, near main streets and shopping in Natomas, CA. Lots of people on the weekend and at night due to the playground and dog park. I gave only 3 stars because it's horrible in the summer due to NO SHADE. I would hardly call it a bird watching place or nature trip considering it's in the middle of a shopping area, next to a high school in the city. Should watch for events that are going on as they often have community events here. Clean. Never had a problem parking. Occasional bicyclists Has a covered picnic table area but it's always in use and right next to the playground. It's not a hike in any way, just a casual, easy walk.
