Park: A Six Sentence Story

When our son was a toddler, we lived in a pleasant neighborhood, built into the California hills west of Los Angeles. There was a small park within walking distance of our home, and we went there frequently. Above our neighborhood, there was another park, with playing fields and playground equipment and a paved walking trail that wandered along the hillside.

We went to this other park once. Once.

After being greeted by this sign, we never went back:

    1. It was a popular park, but certainly not with chickens like me!

  5. If the park had swings, I would still go back, and enjoy the space and quiet from all the people to skeert to come near the maybe-snakes.

  6. Yeah....that would give me pause as well...I've gone into parks with grizzly and wolf warnings and once you are there, you think about it. Or at least I do.

    1. I would have spent all my time watching for a snake that I wouldn't have been able to enjoy the park. And add a toddler into the mix and forget it.
