The city is sister cities with St. Andrews in Scotland, and the southern half of the city is designated as a historical place that still has many older ranch-style homes.

Leashed pups are welcome in the park and have plenty of room to run around and play, or walk along the paved walkways, with access to water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations.
