Drive out Ramon and keep driving. Enjoyable and not strenuous walk through big palm trees, quiet and peaceful. Worth the effort.

This little park was an easy to find getaway from Palm Springs. Well marked trail took you to a small oasis and some great desert views. A good way to see some of the local environment

Maybe. There are flat Sandy parts to the trails. Some parts are a little narrow or rocky.

Not really. The paths are either dirt or wood planks and most of them are dirt and sand which is not very friendly to strollers.
