Sunday Stroll: Alondra Park

Alondra Park 1

Not too long ago we decided to go for a short walk at a local park. I was a bit surprised to see that not only was there a small lake but also an island there!

So of course we had to take a closer look at this island. If you would like to see what we found, click below

If one looks just right, it's almost seems like this might be an island up north.

Although the lake is surrounded by palm and oak trees, the island was planted with both palm and pine trees, making an odd contrast.

So just what is this mysterious gated island in the middle of this lake? It appears to be a California Nature Garden tended by students at El Camino College. It is also home to numerous ducks, geese, rabbits and squirrels.
