VETERANS OASIS PARK REVIEWS
A beautiful park to enjoy walking around in. Beautiful Lake with little waterfalls, lots of ducks, and beautiful Memorial to our Veterans! Nice play area for the children too! Lots of walking trails. We even saw a couple getting Wedding pictures taken by the Lake.
This park is well-maintained and very beautiful. I will recommend you take some food, (do a little picnic as they have ramadas) or you can go for a walk, jog, run, and bike. You can go fishing as well. Make sure to keep the park neat and clean!
Big park, plenty of parking, fishing, walking trails, even little bunnies running around. Must have seen at least 7 of them within a few minutes. Park also has informational wooden placard about several planets. Pretty cool!!

Highly recommend this recreational area for any age group. Adorable play area for children up to 12yrs old. Picnic tables with covers for eating and group activities. Frisbee/disc golf course, archery range, 2 fenced in dog parks, and a walking trail. The park is always clean and well kept. I love walking my dog in the paths and watching all of the different activities happening around the park.
There's a disc golf course, dog park, playground, archery area and canal path. This place used to be a dump, but the city made it into something worthwhile.
Excellent park for adults, kids AND the 4 legged family members. Great bark park. Lots of activities for the kids, too. Also a trailhead for the Paseo bike trail. Plenty of parking, restrooms. Beautiful park.
