A glittering jewel in the middle of the city,
Laurelhurst Park is a outstanding example of an old
fashioned neighborhood park.
Surrounded by busy streets and winding roads
This park is so much more than just a park
Here among the curving paths and lush tall pines
There is an air of hopefulness that radiates.
I have taken many walks here.
This is a special place for me
full of happy memories.
I first came here as a child
and fell in love with its elegant but wild beauty.
I spent much time here
alone with my thoughts.
It is here that I learned to appreciate nature
and life in all its forms.
It is here that my children learned that too.
In the middle of the park lies
I call it Laurelhurst pond
It is the crown jewel and a main destination spot
for most visitors.
The ducks enjoy the limelight
And we enjoy them.
They love to show off
their duck dives
This is one of my most favorite places in the world
Thank you for allowing me to share it with you.
Have A Beautiful Day.
