A creek (SJCD South) runs through the main park offering wetlands and wildlife habitat adjacent to the park amenities. The North Tributary of SJCD South runs through the extreme north end of the park.

This park was originally called Columbine Knolls South II Undeveloped Park. The HOA began developing a master plan for the park in 1988. The first phases of the trails system were initiated in the early 1990’s. By 2001 the entire trails system was renovated to an 8’ wide concrete surface.
