Our neighborhood is home to an old, beautiful, ginormous park. The park has a lagoon (above), a concert space, tennis courts, an empty pool, German statues, playgrounds, and an Urban Ecology Center location. It's the most amazing park to have in our backyard. I've been enjoying taking Pedro and Diego on walks here when I have a little extra time to spare. I feel so calm in this park, and the boys love all the smells. It's easy to forget we're in the city looking at the weeping willows and flocks of geese. I'm looking forward to getting to know the park in the different seasons. Fall is my favorite so far, but we'll see what winter and spring bring. Do you have a favorite park?
