South Jackson Park

This is the park where children's baseball teams play at. It's also the park where Pawley Pool is located. Pawley Pool has completely changed; it has two swimming pools now. They've done some renovation to this park also, there's a new playground and shade structure. This is the park; you're better off bringing your children to, if you live in Indio.

Miles Avenue Park

There has been some renovation done. It's a little more organized; they installed a new playground and extended the concrete sidewalk in the middle that runs north and south. This is a park you probably would not want to take your children to. You're better off taking them to South Jackson Park; if your a resident of Indio. It's because there are crazy people, gangs, homeless, prostitutes and transients at this park. Be careful going to this park.

Indio Fashion Mall

Use to be a nice Mall twenty years ago, but now the owner has completely stopped repairs and interior is really becoming obvious of wear and tear. It's depressing walking inside this Mall.

Berdoo Canyon Road Drive

This road is paved for the first mile or two then becomes dirt road eventually. Definitely for off road vehicles to see deep into the canyons. The canyons look interesting near the wash area where 50 feet of the road was washed away. After carefully crossing this rocky covered dirt portion at the wash the pavement picks up for another 100 feet and that was it. You definitely will need to be driving an off road vehicle to continue this adventure. Note that this area at the wash specially is considered out of city limits. So don't be alarmed to see gun owners target shooting near or at the wash. This road has been neglected if not totally ignored by the City from maintenance so expect to run into 1 to 2 inches deep patch missing on the surface of the pavement.

National Date Festival

Typical Fairground with rides, exhibits, food, entertainment, live concerts. Involves a lot of walking as usual at places like this. Expect to walk around 5 miles just getting familiar inside. While you're there you might as well try the Date Shake. If you wanted to meet the Date Festival Queens attend the Ostrich Race and you're sure to see all three there and may be even have a photo with them. It's not the greatest place, in February if you're in the neighborhood and have no plans, it's pretty cool place to check out.

Fun, easy road. Did not drive the whole trail. Went about half way then i decided to pull over and play with my Mossberg. Trails offers plenty of spots to do stuff like that. Can get busy on the weekends.
