What’s your favorite park?
Smith, Splinter, Lions, Legion, Hickory Hills, Bond, Belmont Mound, Mound View, First Capital, Soldiers Memorial, Governor Dodge, Wyalusing, Nelson Dewey, Harrison, Highland, …. and the list goes on.
Some people travel the world in search of beauty, fun, and adventure. Others know they can find it right here at home… in our area parks. Virtually every day, 365 of them each year, there’s a sunrise and a sunset, and in many of these parks, that event by itself is spectacular. All we have to do is open our minds and hearts to the limitless possibilities our parks provide.
“The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” –John Muir
You can shoot baskets, climb on things, walk, talk, listen, picnic, or just simply take time to breathe and relax. When was the last time you took your dinner to a park and ate there? There’s so much to do and so much to enjoy.
And now, with spring sprung and summer next in line, these are the days your future self will thank you for taking time to get up close and personally familiar with some of the particular parks around you.
