Located in Central Park north of Ellis Avenue between Goldenwest and Edwards Streets
The Urban Forest is a passive park featuring Californianative plants and trees, and low water flora.
While there is no potable water or restroom available, there are wide walking trails in and around the fenced area and several benches for the public’s comfort and enjoyment while observing the natural features of the park and surrounding area, including the mountain vistas and equestrian trails.
This park provides year-round enjoyment for the community in a location used by the walking public, equestrian center, and off-road bicycle enthusiasts. Seasonal changes reflected in the vegetation, and the migratory birds and butterflies, add to the enjoyment of visiting this beautiful and unique park.
Solar chimneys are passive solar ventilation systems. Shafts connect the interior and exterior of the building. The functioning can be improved by glazing and using thermal mass materials. Learn more about solar.
