Arroyo Burro Open Space (Veronica Meadows)
This little-known city park was once going to be the site of a housing development, but it was saved by the Trust for Public Land and transferred to City ownership in 2016. Visitors to the park can walk through oak woodland, grassland, riparian, and eucalyptus grove habitats, check out the recently completed restoration and revegetation project along Arroyo Burro Creek, and observe wildlife such as raptors, songbirds, and dusky-footed woodrats.
