What a great idea! It is a small area that is decorated, but it is very well done. Lights in song with the music. An open area to dance on a patio if you so choose.

The Prime Desert Preserve is just beautiful. It is in the high desert of Mojave, in the City of Lancaster. During the Spring the area is filled with color (for a desert). The trees and cactus are blooming and the brush is green mixed with...More

This is amazing. The preserve is tucked right in the middle of neighborhoods. It's unique because Joshua Trees and Junipers live side by side which apparently is not the norm. The paths are nice and there are interpretative signs on the walkway. We saw lots...More

It was a very relaxing meandering through the paths laid out to display native vegitation, and also numerous native creatures. I was mildly surprised to see rabbits and other creatures crossing the paths and scampering off after checking out the strangers evading their turf. Good...More

This is a smallish park kinda hidden near a residential neighborhood. Small but good. Learn about the beauty of our desert and how the desert lifecycle works. Trails-paths are level and good for small kids as well as the elderly. Get out and enjoy nature...More

What a lovely area. So well taken care of...immaculate trails and a great variety of wild life. Perfect stop for an afternoon walk. Trail runs about 3 miles if you walk all of it.
