Seasonal oasis

By definition, an oasis is ...

"A fertile spot in a desert, where water is found."

Compare that to Oasis Visitor Center.

It's a refuge in the middle of a swamp surrounded by water on all sides.

Or, at least that's usually the case;

First the summer rains have to return and fill it back up.

Until then, yes, it's a seasonal oasis in the middle of a desert-like swamp.
