Banning Park is an urban oasis for wildlife, birds especially. During migration it attracts birds due to its being a small patch of green in a big expanse of cement. This, along with the diversity of long-standing trees planted makes it the hot birding location that it is. There are times when thousands of birds can be seen in this little park! It's quite easy to spend several hours birding here, particularly in the spring and fall.
