I pass through this small park several times a week and it always lifts my spirit. It's a collection of preserved historic houses that are now used for offices for non-profit organizations. Architecture, landscaping and fountain are lovely. Quiet oasis.

My organization rents out rooms in the summer to host workshops for educators. It is central - which is great! Even though it is in the middle of a city, it provides a relaxing environment that feels just outside the chaos of a city.
