Native vegetation landscaping has been planted throughout the park, including Bee’s Bliss (salvia), Bear Berry (Arctostaphylos), Little Sur Manzanita (A. Edmundisi), Festuca (F. Californica), Muhelenbergia (M. Rigens-Deer Grass), Sisynachiam (S. Bellum Nanum) – Blue eyed grass, Lupin, Mahonia Berberis (Oregon grape) and California Poppies.
