Continuing my thoughts about the upcoming change of seasons, I remembered this park about 10 minutes from my house. I’ve been there many times and it occurred to me that it might be a good spot for plein air painting when warmer weather comes. So I stopped by Cisco Park and took a sunshine with me.
This park could be the template for a community park. It has everything you could want – trees, ball field, walking path, fishing pond (frozen over right now), plenty of benches, picnic tables, a tot lot, gazebo, and two bridges. In the summer it’s shady and pleasant here.
Even now there are people using the park. I saw this man walking his dog.
I set the sunshine on a raised garden bed.
I know that in the summer this bed is full of flowers and leafy bushes, but right now, we are still waiting for winter to loosen its grip on the earth. Nothing showing yet as far as anything growing.
I noticed that the Boy Scouts have done some projects in the park – tree nametags and installing bird boxes.
There is more about the Sunshine Project right here, or you can search the category “Sunshine Project”.
