|I've been going here once in a while for a few years now and I'd love to see any beta about EAP. I can post some photos from this spot but I have no real info on routes. If anyone has any information on the spot that'd be great. I have thought about drawing a map of the park's boulders as there are a number of decent ones.|

Here's some random info from memory:
Walk in from the parking lot with the playground on your left. Soon there will be a boulder on the left that is short on the side facing the path but about 8 feet high on the right side. This has 1 or 2 0's going up the jugs on the tall side. It also has a 3 starting on the overhung corner and going big move (I think) out right. Then it also has 1 or 2 5+ climbs that start in this overhung part and go left. I think one goes left and straight up the arrete and the other traverses left onto the side facing the path. I think I may have cleaned another route that started on this path-side face and climbed right.
If you keep walking past this boulder there will be a section of boulders on your left. One is pretty tall about 10-12 feet. This has a 0 and 2 1's on it I believe. The 0 starts on a different boulder were it looks like a snake head then goes right into the tall boulder.
Past this also on the left is a tall face 10-12 feet with a left facing flake. This is a good climb but IIRC the top out is too dirty to top out and I had to do a sketchy drop. To the right of this boulder is a boulder with a nice horizontal arrete climb that I think goes at a 3. That's all I know for the area.

I got bored and since I live 3 minutes from the park I took my dog for a walk and took a few pictures. I added what I saw and what I climbed a few years ago. The hillside boulders are much chossier than I remember and outside of First Boulder I'm not sure I'd put much confidence in any of the rock in the park.
Probably not worth much more than a lunch break curiosity trip.
