Take a peaceful walk beneath the shade trees, and stop by Santana’s Oak, which is 600 years old and 12 feet in diameter. The park hosts memorial services at the historical tree, and any history enthusiast wouldn’t want to miss this landmark.

It’s complete with an efficiency kitchen, so you’ll have everything you need.
