Saying goodbye to our old park.

I have shared many photographs of our old abandoned park in my hometown. It was a ranch when I was a child that bordered our favorite place to play. In the 70’s the old rancher sold the place and the new residents turned it into a trailer and RV park. Throughout the years the residents put their own style on each little pad and planted trees and flowers.

I went there the other day because it is Meika and Penny’s favorite place to run and swim, and one of my favorite places to take photographs.

I was shocked to see, the whole place was leveled. All the trees and old cement pads removed.

Here is what it used to look like.

    • I don’t know, progress, money to be had. There were hawks, falcons, bats all living here. The wildlife people also tried to save the park, by turning it into a walking park. They did try, and kept it in probate for years and years.
