How did it take me so long to discover Washington Park??
I spent a few hours of a beautiful day wandering around this park and was amazed at its beauty..in my opinion, it rivals Central Park in New York City, at a much smaller scale. It had a grand entrance, stone walkways and bridges, old old huge trees and playgrounds and benches that just beckoned you to stay for a while.
Washington Park was designed in the mid-1890's and was originally centered around a streetcar line (how cool is that to think of how life once was here a hundred years ago?!). It has since grown from a 17 acre park to 75-acres that is nestled amongst several neighborhoods just South of Downtown Winston-Salem.
Here's just a glimpse...
Care for a drink?
Is it possible to love sun flare and close-ups too much? Maybe..but I don't care!
