We tried out a new park today. The park itself isn't new, but we had never taken the kids there. In the past, it was really run down, but it was recently taken over by our area metro parks system. They have done a lot of work and we had a fun time exploring. The shelter above is huge and has a large stone fireplace in the center of the back wall, along with lots of charcoal grills on one side. We ate a picnic dinner there and then hiked along the trail that took us to another part of the park. There is no playground equipment, but there is a nice trail, some ponds, and real restrooms. We'll definitely be going back soon!
