El Dorado Park East

El Dorado East has several lakes, some soft bottom and some cement bottom.  The soft bottom lakes have a natural look.  Bike/walking paths wind though the park.  This section of El Dorado Park attracts a number of wild bird species, only a very few shown below.  A full list of park activities, maps, fees and directions can be found on the official website at:

Tip, one entry fee is good for both El Dorado East and El Dorado Nature Center.
