Heritage Park


We lived here about 5 years before I discovered this wonderful park just minutes away from where I live.  These are shots from that first visit.  As you walk down one side of the the trail there is a pond to the right.
Immediately upon arriving, I saw a Green Heron take flight.
Unfortunately, I wasn't prepared...so my shots didn't turn out.
But I liked this one of the cattails growing on the edge of the pond.
There were buildings that were overgrown. I think they
left them overgrown on purpose - These are "ruins" of the "Old Brown Farm"

There is a shed behind all of this greenery.

And as we walked out, we passed the pond again and
this guy decided to make an appearance.
My pics really don't do him justice...he is BIG!
This park has about 170 acres so we didn't even hit the tip of it on our first visit. I have been back many times and it is one of my FAVORITE places!

Looks like a great place to take pictures. I really like the buildings but my favorite is the cattails.

Looks like a natural reserve - and all the better for it. Some parks tend to be a bit over-elaborated. This one must be worth many a stroll.

Isn't it fun to find new places to ramble? And this one looks great! I'm sure you will be there often.

Looks like a great park. Love the image of the turtle poking his head - ever so slightly - out of water.

Looks like a great park and that turtle looks like quite a big fellow.

What neat shots of the old barn. I always like to imagine what the barns purpose was in it's lifetime. I like the turtle too. This has been some year for turtles.
Great post.

You have amazing parks! I must say, I'm always stunned at the beauty of your area of the country. These are wonderful shots! I love old buildings that are being overtaken by nature.
