OPEN LANDS AND GREEN SPACE

The eastern section of Hazel Crest's Open Lands area extends off of California Avenue and opens onto Lake Owens. The trails and green spaces offer a slice of nature and opportunities for recreation and exercise to area residents. Among the wildlife that can be seen here are deer, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, possum, chipmunks, owls and a wide variety of other birds, including hawks and an occasional eagle. The types of trees -- which are kept diverse to maintain the long-term wellbeing of the forest -- include elms, conifers, crabapple, horse chestnuts, ginkgos, oaks, maples and walnuts, among others.
