Part of UC Davis - mostly paved - plenty of ducks - well marked signs detailing the plants and trees from around the world

Nice for quiet romantic walks in the early evening. Nearby eateries are good for a quick bite, afterwards.

I am looking forward to the completion of the waterway improvements. Next I plan to start from downtown Davis. :-)

Nice Stroll in the park on 12 November 2016. Was a little crowded and noisy especially around the Southwest side near the freeway. Lots of turtles and waterfowl in the waterway and various types of plants and flowers along the trail.

Easy, nice walk. No open bathrooms around. Not a lot of shade on the trail so you wouldn't want to go on a hot day.

Great place to go for a casual walk with friends or a significant other Lots of aquatic wildlife including some adorable river otters are often around in the bigger ponds. Paved all the way around and not really a trail more of a park path

It was okay. It should of had more benches. It should of had more bathrooms. But other than that it was an okay stroll in the park with the family.

Beautiful scenery. Green water but that will change in the next few years and doesn't stink so I'm okay with it :)

Peaceful with a lot of different trees and plants (and turtles) to see, even in the middle-of-summer heat.

My only dislike is the algae that suffocates the waterway, but they're working on improvements to fix that. Otherwise, it's great.
