Yesterday, while previewing a brand-new-on-the-market single story home, I made a most delightful discovery. I turned left from the cute “Fab Fifties era” home I had just visited, drove past several houses to where the street ended and came to a stop. I noticed I was facing a gorgeous jungle of tall green trees. I was about to turn left, when I spotted what looked like a “secret entrance” and a sign. Curious, I parked my car, walked back, and found a gorgeous walking trail leading to a good sized park.
Walking through the barely visible trail entrance, and feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland walking into a mystical magical Wonderland, I was delighted to see a cool trail, awesome trees, and just the kind of place my grandkids would LOVE!
It was a 22-acre area that included a lake, a fishing pier, playground, picnic shelter, awesome trail system that makes you feel like you are way out in the country and a seasonal restroom. (IMPORTANT NOTE for parents, grandparents, etc. – notice it says SEASONAL restroom. I've never heard of that before so I'll make sure to take that into account if I take my grandkids to this park when it's off-season. 🙂
The area I visited was gorgeous and full of trees my grandkids would love! I only went in a few feet as I was headed to another appointment. I will definitely be back to visit this lovely park. I suspect it will be full of magical moments and exciting discoveries – a veritable country oasis in the middle of a city, and a lovely place to walk away any stress from the day. How about you and your “neck of the woods?” Have you discovered any special parks that you absolutely love? We'd enjoy hearing about them!
