Los Flores Ranch Park is the first of its kind regional open space park in the Santa Maria Valley. At 1,778 acres (nearly 2.8 square miles), the property lies about eight miles south of Santa Maria in the Solomon Hills. The park offers the public a rare mix of environmental education, land preservation and recreation, with about eight miles of hiking/equest-rian/mountain biking trails. Guided docent tours are available. At certain times of the year, guided nature walks will be held on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Walkers will meet at the visitor center off of Dominion Road. Volunteer recruitment is also under way to fill critical park maintenance, docent and hiking guide roles. Training will be provided for all volunteers. For recorded park information, please call (805) 925-0951 extension 2985.
