Hillcrest Park

Regrettably some of the original features of the park have been replaced by more modern amenities, there is still plenty to explore in the park. The recreation center, completed in a Spanish revival style appears more boutique hotel or winery than a public recreation center. The stone walkways, planters, and retaining walls also lend a very natural, earthy tone to the park. Many of the original improvements were built under the Works Progress Administration, so it should not be a surprise the park takes on the feeling and aura of a National Park. (2017)
