I had been going to chaparral Park for many years before I noticed this garden tucked away in the NE corner near the dog park. A nice addition to an already terrific park.

This is right behind the ball park & dog park. Well done signs to explain the watering system & suggestions for planting arid soil plants most efficiently.

Came across this while walking along N Hayden park land. It is located at the back of the park behind the off leash dog runs. Quite an assortment of plants and most are marked, which is helpful.
