For some exploration around the concrete condos and Banyan trees, one will find the remnants of a wildlife tourist attraction that was open from 1953 until 1961 — Africa U.S.A Park. It housed zebra, ostrich, cranes, wildebeest, zebra, chimpanzee, cheetahs, and gazelle. When squinting in the sun, one can see how the founder, John P. Pedersen, could see this area as an African backdrop. It now resides within Camino Gardens development. The lagoon's geyser base is still visible from the sidewalk.
