Park in My Backyard

Published on Nov 25, 2015

Uses and urbanization of nature parks


Park in My BackYard

This park is just a FEW MINUTES' WALK from our house

over the past 15 years

We investigated the critters in this pond many times

The pond now looks like this

On one hand, I'm pleased more people are using the park

And that there is an intepretive Center

 Which provides access for all

I like the many thoughtful features,

such as this bridge conserved from an old sawmill

And the addition of this bridge to the ever-expanding network of

bicycle paths

no future generations will see nature in this park as my sons did

But I also mourn

some of them will still investigate the pond

as my son did recently

But the essence

will never quite be the same
