These are pictures of the park connected to our school.  It has a neat little stream that goes through it. Pedestrian bridges, and amazing weeping willow trees.  It’s a great place to reenact “We are Going on a Bear Hunt,” or to gather nature items.  We have also made paper boats and watched them float down the little stream.  Yes the children can get dirty, yes it takes extra effort, yes it creates memories that are long lasting and that is totally worth it!!
