Thanks for all of the great comments about yesterday’s post! Milwaukee has some very lovely areas, and mama wants to showcase them.
Back to our walk. Let’s see…
One of the great features about this park is the sheer size of it. It’s in the middle of a residential area on the southside of the city, but once you step in all you see is nature. (All of the pictures biggify)
This picture doesn’t do it justice.
Mama is a water person, so she really loves the two lagoons. This small one can be seen from the street.
Mama’s Michelin Man shadow. (she’s such a dork)
The park has a bandshell; during summer the county parks have a music program where they let bands play in it, but it was built in the Seventies and looks icky so we spared you.
Only a few greenspaces in the city allow dogs. Here’s one enjoying his day out (mama is a sucker for woofies in shirts/jackets/coats)
It was a cool and sunny day Tuesday on mama’s off day, so she went for a walk in Humboldt Park on the southside and took her camera with her (you will need to save this link as an MS Word File then open it) . The park she visited was one she hadn’t been to in many years. Back in the Dark Ages when she was a teenager, her family lived near it and she and her sister used to go there in the summer. She’s been dying to get some photos of fall colors to post and today was the perfect day for it.
Ready? Let’s go.
This is the entrance:
