Peace at Battle Point Park

What happens when the sun makes an appearance in this neck of the woods? You grab the kids and dog and dash to Battle Point Park to run down their endless energy enjoy it. That’s what my daughter and I did recently.

Battle Point Park, so named for what happens when your child must leave it, is a large, 90 acre park complete with giant playground swarming with kids and 1 1/2 mile walking path around the park’s perimeter.

You might slide the slides or if you’re lazy like me, bench yourself on the benches.

You might lay low and have a snack in a quiet spot.

You might see a few couples enjoying a stroll.

You might feel small compared to the largeness of your surroundings.

It’s also a great destination to avoid that annual ritual that I never manage to do: spring cleaning.

(I think he missed a spot)

Yes, spring is in the air at Battle Point Park.

To which, I say, Achoo!

So, bring your Kleenex, avoid your chores for one more day, and come enjoy our local outdoors!

  1. I just love that park. I love the trail that winds around. My kids love taking their bikes and just ride for hours. And the bunnies?!! I spent alot of time convincing my daughter that we could not take one home.

  2. i’ve known people who tried to take home bunnies. don’t do it, y’all!! enjoy them from afar, unless you’re my dog…but she hasn’t caught one yet. 🙂
