    Veterans Oasis Park is considered one of the premier birding spots in the valley, with recharge basins, riparian environments, and an abundance of native vegetation, and draws a variety of migratory and local birds to the park. The park is a popular spot to exercise outdoors, with a 4.5-mile paved multi-purpose trail around the lake.
