Butterfly GardenThe park also features habitat gardens. Enter the park parking lot via Civic Drive, and then cross the orange-colored wood and metal bridge to the left. The habitat gardens are nestled between the Iron Horse Trail and the ball field.

The habitat gardens were originally designed by John Northmore Roberts and installed in 1996 by LandArt. In 1999, the City hired consultant Dann McCright and the Lindsay Wildlife Museum to oversee the habitat gardens' development. Since then, the gardens have become a virtual oasis for more than 25 species of butterfly and 130 species of California native plants.

 

butterflyVisitors will find a variety of interpretive signs at the habitat gardens. Park visitors can walk along the pathways or enjoy resting in the shade of Valley oak trees hundreds of years old. The Creek Walk which follows Walnut Creek also makes its way through the habitat gardens.
