Calypso Park - The park is open from dawn until 30 minutes past sunset.
It's easy to miss this little treasure, just inside the front (Veterans Memorial) gate and next to Barkley Park, one of our two gated dog parks.
Calypso Park offers residents a beautiful 4.5-acre park for watching the sunset or taking a leisurely evening stroll.
Or casting a line off the fishing pier into our 22-acre lake and enjoying a lazy afternoon.
Don't feel like fishing? Then how about relaxing on our newly installed benches while peering out over the pier?
Grills, pathways, and covered picnic areas enhance this scenic location. Why not plan a Happy Hour and grill something tasty right here at the park? Maybe grab a friend who plays guitar and have a songfest!
A fun amenity here in Calypso Park is Chip and Putt Disc Golf. Get your family and friends together to enjoy a game of this combination of Frisbee and golf!
Or visit our recently added butterfly garden. Already, in the span of just a few months, four different species of butterflies have taken up residence in the garden. And, as is typical around here, a club has formed around this amenity, the Sandoval Butterfly Garden Club, whose primary goal is to attract as many species of butterflies as possible with irresistible host and nectar plants. Learn more about butterflies, become a club member, or simply watch and enjoy them, perhaps pondering this quote…"There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly."~ R. Buckminster Fuller.
The park and its facilities are available for all Sandoval residents and their guests. The resident must accompany all guests. From time to time, it's necessary to close the park for landscape maintenance; we'll post signs at the entrance gate to let you know.
