This is a non-irrigated native grass park that follows the North Tributary of SJCD South drainage. There are two ponds in the park, which are located along the drainage. A few park benches overlook the ponds. This is a nice place for local songbird and waterfowl viewing. Sanctuary Park is located immediately south of Eagle Meadows Park. Foothills ownership includes both sides of the ponds and the North Tributary of SJCD South drainage, however the Meadows Sanctuary Subdivision HOA is responsible for park maintenance on the south side of the creek and ponds. The granite sand surface trail determines an Easy to Moderate rating. From the east, the trail begins in Sanctuary Park at the park frontage on W. Glasgow Ave. Note: the Sanctuary Park Glasgow Ave. frontage is located ¼ mile east of the Eagle Meadows Glasgow frontage. The trail follows the North Tributary of SJCD South drainage as it heads west toward Eagle Meadows Park. The trail continues west to the apartment complex where the granite sand trail surface turns to a concrete surface. The trail winds through the apartment complex and ends at W. Ken Caryl Ave.
A few park benches overlooking the 2 ponds. Note: Eagle Meadows Park originally featured a small retention pond and wetlands that followed the North Tributary of SJCD South drainage. In 2000, the original pond was drained, rebuilt and divided into 2 ponds by the Sanctuary developer. No reports on fish populations are available and the park is not listed as a fishing resource at this time.
