Very nice park but not great for running. I ended up running through most of the park in a short amount of time so decided to go through the adjacent neighborhood which had very beautiful homes.

A nice park to walk around. Great views and I can imagine how beautiful it must of been in the early years before freeways and buildings. Right near old town. Near Mission Hills which is also a beautiful area to live.

This is a very nice family oriented park. You can see excellent views of the city and walk on paths that are easy to difficult to hike.

This was a lookout point of great military value and that can clearly be understood from the view. You could easily see a fleet or an army approaching. The grounds need work. It's a climb from old town that's worth the effort if you've got...More

As a child I remember it being so lush and my sister got married there but now due to the drought it is brown. The fort itself and reading the history is interesting.
