New Park

When we first came to look at houses we drove around and found a fantastic park. It was a wooden castle structure in a wooded park next to a creek. We loved it and ended up buying a house only a mile away.

In June 2012 vandals set fire to the castle park and a large park of it was destroyed. We were devastated that something like this could happen.
For many months a smaller, usable portion of the park was all that we could play on. We didn't even bother visiting the park during those months. It was just too sad of a reminder of what was lost in the fire.
 The community really came together and over the course of one week hundreds of volunteers built a beautiful new park for everyone to enjoy!

Yeah for summer and park days!

Wow! I had no idea that had happened. Now I can't wait to bring the kids to the "new" park.
