Find serenity in the middle of Brookwood Park. The labyrinth took almost a year to design and fundraise, privately funded as a joint collaboration between Kindred at Home Hospice and the Pleasant Hill Rec Dept. and was finally completed by a group of volunteers in June 2015.

3. Take a trip to Lake Tahoe


Tahoe California has many winter activities, including skiing, tubing, and sledding. Home to 11 ski and snowboard resorts, and hundreds of trails, there is plenty to enjoy during a California winter here at Lake Tahoe.
