This project element is on the eastside of the park, immediately north of the Windsor/Ventura intersection. This area is at a great west-facing promontory outlook, providing an overview of the basin from this side of the park. The project element is largely a clean-up and restoration project. The area will be cleared of all weeds, brush, and dead trees. The area will be planted as specified in the habitat restoration plan. Seating and interpretive signage will be provided at this site for visitors to learn about the area and to understand what they are viewing from this location. The overlook is located at the main eastside park entrance. The project element will predominantly serve as an inspirational and educational opportunity. The site will overlook water conservation elements of the park, habitat restoration areas, and stream corridor restoration in the park.
The current project includes minor work at the existing Winsor/Ventura Parking lot, including accessibility and safety improvements, a new drinking fountain, interpretive sign, and parking lot manitenance.
