This is the location that my daughter and her group choose to take the pictures before one of their formal high school dances.

This is always a great choice of public parkspace to spend some time. Although it may not be a huge space...it is a truly lovely one. This visit was a Wednesday morning in late July.

I live close by so my wife and I make our way around all of the gardens by Calhoun and Harriet. They are all well kept and maintained. Lots of wedding parties make there way here.

if you want to escape the joggers, bikes and rollerbladers this is the best place to go. Find a rock and sit down- or if you wish there are many hidden benches in the shade. Be aware of Saturday wedding photo crowds which can over run the place very quickly.
