Have You Visited Queen Califia’s Magic Circle Garden?

One thing I find surprising is that many people do not know about the great things about living in Escondido, so today I am going to talk about one of my personal favorites.  Tucked away in Kit Carson Park is Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden by the acclaimed artist NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE’S.   It is just one piece of Escondido’s considerable Public Art Program which makes it a special place to live or visit.

You will find this magical, joyful place in the park, just behind the 17th hole of the Frisbee Golf course.  Imagine fanciful colors, and mirrors all working together to create a maze of imaginative creatures.  There is also a treasure waiting to be discovered at the heart of the maze. So I will say no more least I spoil the surprise of discovery for you.  This is such a fanciful place no one can leave here without a song in their heart and a smile on their face.

The park also offers beautifully shaded picnic tables, play ground areas for the younger  kids, and as noted before an awesome Frisbee golf course for the big kids.  It is a great place to spend a lazy Southern California day.  It’s  location is 3333 Bear Valley Pkwy, Escondido, CA 92025.

The thing that got me thinking about this was the fact that I just listed a beautiful home in Escondido.  If you are here to enjoy the Kit Carson Park and decide that Escondido looks like a great place to live you should give me a call.   I can help you with that.

See you in the neighborhood,

Many experts agree that right now the affordability of homes here in Southern California is at a very favorable level.  Prices are much more affordable than they have been and with the extremely low interest rates, this makes it a wonderful time to buy.

This beautiful home has lots of natural light, an open floor plan and a large master.  It is move-in ready with new carpet and interior paint ans even has new sod in the back yard.  Located on a quiet cul-de-sac across from a small community park at 1557 Amber Creek Ct., Vista. CA .
