At this time of year there is interesting vistas, the river, cattails, grasses, a small lake/pond, cottonwood trees and maybe some ice along the edges of the marshes. There is plenty of parking and flat trails and boardwalks. The home before you enter the park has some livestock that are fun to paint too.
Directions: Take the Keystone Exit off of I-80 and turn south onto Keystone Ave. Continue to W. Second Street and turn Right (West). After several blocks Second Street bears left and becomes Dickerson Road. There is no sign indicating but just go that way. You travel through a semi industrial area and the road dead-ends into Oxbow Nature Study Area.
What to bring (same as always):
- cell phone
- drinking water and snack or lunch
- painting gear
- carts work on boardwalks and paths
- hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
- art umbrella?
- check weather for appropriate layers of clothing
