Bush Park has been a treat to walk in with it's many trees to shade us , especially this week's heat in the 90's. I love the slight incline walk where the soapbox derby is held.

I was looking for a park that I could jog. I was advised by my friend here. This is a very nice park. Rose garden was lovely!! I would like to have a picnic with lunch if I go next time!! ジョギングができる公園を探し、友人にここを勧められました。 とても自然豊かでキレイな公園、ローズガーデンもあります。 ランチを持ってピクニックも良さそうな場所です‼︎
