Central Park is an interesting spot in the city and contains several areas worth visiting. The park uses xeriscaping, which means indigenous plants are used to conserve water. The Huntington Beach Public Library is housed within the area. Along with almost a half-million volumes, the complex has a theater, fountains and gift shop. The library was originally established with a Carnegie Foundation grant. Additional branches are scattered around the city. One feature of the park is the equestrian center. The center is a boarding facility that also offers public horse rentals. Riders can enjoy several trails located within the park. Guides accompany guests on these rides.1
