My daughter took me here. I was visiting from Florida. This is a very relaxing peaceful place and the "jewels" scattered about the trails are beautiful. Like hunting easter eggs.

Monarch Sculpture Park has reopened. It is a ways out of town. Great to ride out there on "Western Bike Trail". Very fun, whimsical. Took picnic lunch and enjoyed the art and pleasant surroundings, birds, etc.
