The grassy, tree-filled Floyd Lamb Park offers a great respite from the desert. Several ponds in the park support a wealth of plant and animal life, including an abundance of birds. Fishing in the stocked ponds is allowed (with a license), although no swimming or wading. The grounds are full of critters, including peacocks, geese and ducksâ" who are used to people feeding them. Be careful if you have small children because the large birds can be persistent. Paths and picnic tables make the park an attractive choice for a day of walking, picnicking or watching wildlife. Horseback rides are also offered at an equestrian center on the grounds, although an appointment is required. Also within the park's boundaries is the historic Tule Springs Ranch, whose remaining buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.
