Plan detail of park arbors Cluff Vista Park has two fountains and associated ponds, which are connected by an ephemeral stream. The fountains symbolize the sun and the moon, respectively, with the pond at the eastern edge of Overlook Circle round in shape, and the lower pool in a crescent or half-moon shape, located at the east end of the park.

Fountains and Ponds of Cluff Vista Park

At the center of the park, in Overlook Circle, is a lovely circlular pond, representing the sun. The circle is also symbolic of the circle (and cycles) of life, which was so important to the native people, and all life.

The omphalos pond and stone, serving as the headwaters to the riparian creek, is located in Overlook Circle, in the center of the park. There are springs in the Ojai backcountry where water simply appears out of the rock, not unlike this omphalos stone spring.
