As you pass the Palm Desert Civic Center on Fred Waring Drive, this Council Chamber building looks appealing but maybe not worth investigating. That is a mistake. Turn on San Pablo Avenue and park behind the Civic Center. Tucked among the City Hall and Sheriff’s office is a visitor center. They will tell you about all of the amenities worth enjoying. They include a gymnasium, YMCA, community center, sports fields and the best park in Coachella Valley.
