Hip, hip, hooray! It is National Visit a Park Day on October 4th (aka get your behind outside despite the high wind advisory warnings. Just bring a few blanket anchors). With that said, It is a beautiful day to take a trip down to the local park.
Here is a list of a few popular parks:
There is a paved loop walking trail and plenty of area to spread out for a picnic. This place looks deceiving from the street. After you walk over the hill and pass the playground, it opens up. A nice wide space and is usually filled with dogs (some on leash but mostly off).
A large lake, picnic tables and wildlife. What else do you need. If you haven’t been yet, go. Plus, cross the street to Woodley for even more to look at with the nature trail (no dogs are allowed on trail).
I was completely amazed when I entered. The place is so well manicured, it reminded me of Disneyland. Minus the boat ride through. The entire walk/self tour takes approximately 35-45 minutes at a moderate pace, including stopping for pictures. However, I could picture being here for about 2 hours to really take in all the plants and information on the map.
Those are some our favorites. What are yours?
