Throwback Adventure – Stanley Park – August 2016

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In August 2016 Shadow, Buster, and I visited Stanley Park in Westfield, Massachusetts.  Sadly Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures.  He was an amazing boy, and will always be missed.  Stanley Park is a non-profit, privately owned park, that is approximately 300 acres in size.  It includes:  gardens, trails, playing fields, and a duck pond.  The park was established in 1945 by philanthropist Frank Stanley Beveridge.

We stopped at Stanley Park after a wonderful visit with family.  The park was beautifully landscaped, and highlights of our visit, included:  a variety of bridges, an old working mill, the duck-filled pond, an old rustic church, and even a live swan!  We enjoyed walking along the trails, and photographing the gorgeous scenery.  This was as stop that I planned, but did not do any detailed research, so we wandered around without a map.  However, I do think we found some of the highlights of this magnificent park (Rating:  4).
