Wow, This is amazing!

I love Playscapes, I'm not sure where else I would have stumbled upon this rock climbing wall at a daycare center in Finland. As a avid rock climber (years and a few pounds ago), cartographer, and huge fan of functional arts and crafts, this combines all three and just blows me away. It makes me want to vist Vuokatti Finland - it's probably a cool place to host something like this.

Wise Musings of a London 3rd Grader

The Place To Be When You’re Lonely 


Parks are delightful places 
They have the sweet smells 
Of laughter, joy, and happiness 
The grass as green as anything 
Trees as big as mountains 
Oh, this place to be when you’re lonely, 
You get happy in a flash. 


-by Noa Mirsch 
London Elementary School, 3rd  Grade

Snow Photos for the New Year

I haven't posted lately with the holidays and such; well also, I've been too busy drafting a comprehensive parks master plan for the Town, shepherding Southern Park toward the construction phase, and preparing a hefty grant application.  At any rate, here are some winter pictures from Mary Hayes Barber Holmes Park to herald the new year.  I got out a day or two too late to capture the majesty of the snow laden trees; but if anyone has snow photos of Pittsboro's parks or downtown, please send them my way.
