Paseo Vista Recreation Area Dog Park The Paseo Vista Recreation Area, is located on the northwest corner of McQueen and Ocotillo roads.

Today, the slopes still dominate the landscape but they are covered with boulders encased in wire to help control erosion, decomposed granite, wildflowers and other plants.
