The site is used by dog owners and their pets. Most seem to utilize the flat area. However, more are realizing the value of the scenic and peaceful trail section in the southern part of the park. The paved circular path connects with an erosion control swale that leads down the hill to Portofino Drive (although it no longer goes all the way through to that street). With its magnificent view through the canyon, the entire area is appealing to even non-pet owners. A number of prospective users have commented on concerns with the area not being completely fenced and the presence of foxtails.
