The Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza includes outdoor activity spaces including a Gathering Plaza adjacent to the Agua Caliente Hot Mineral Spring, originally known as Séc-he (the sound of boiling water), which serves as a commemorative focal point for the Cultural Plaza. Here, tribal members and visitors can celebrate community and history as well as pay respect to the life-giving waters that helped shape the Palm Springs region. Visitors can readily access the Gathering Plaza along landscaped terraces and pathways.
The Oasis Trail is a permanent outdoor exhibition located in the middle of the Agua Calie0te Cultural Plaza that includes native plants, rock formations, and water features inspired by those found in the Agua Caliente Indian Canyons and Tahquitz Canyon. These canyons make up part of the Tribe's ancestral lands. The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians have thrived in this area since time immemorial.
