It is a nice place to walk around and picnic or go to the restaurant on site. You can ride a real train and sit under the big trees. Also close to Poway Lake.

This park is in the middle of Poway, just about 10-15 minutes East of I-15. Plenty of picnic tables under big shady trees with large grassy areas. A creek runs through the park and there are a few bridges crossing over it. Surrounding the park...More
