As unique as Zoran’s was, it was good to have the contrast of a city park and veteran’s memorial across the street. I will admit that I enjoyed Sheridan Memorial Park more. The park planners and artist’s collaborated well in the planning for both the memorial and park. Joggers and bike riders on the river path beside the memorial did not detract from the sense of stillness I felt while visiting.
I’m glad we visited just before the snowy winter we’re now experiencing. The small park was very friendly with a lookout spot and a few trees along the river bank. North of the memorial was a unique playground with a sculpture like rock climbing egg, a stone circle, creative uses of old timber like logs for playground equipment. It was enjoyed by the kiddos and other families while we were present. I believe that Kid Willow enjoyed the basic slide the most.
While the kiddos played, I enjoyed watching a grey squirrel getting ready for winter. It was nice to take in the scenery along the river that was still flowing. This is another place I would like to see again in spring when the flowers are in bloom.
Bye for now.
