Friday night, at my request, we loaded up the stroller and went for a stroll in Prince's Island Park. We've been there quite a number of times before, for Canada Day, Folk Festival, Shakespeare in the Park and random bike rides and walks.
It's a beautiful place to walk in the evening.
Music from buskers can be heard throughout.
People from all nationalities and all walks of life are there:
out walking or biking or picnicking or playing games,
or hitching rides in strollers, as Mom and Dad walk.
There are plenty of places along the river to stop to admire the scenery,
or to have a snack.
The ducks and geese waddle along,
showing off their fluffy offspring and begging for food.
The evening sunshine reflects off the river
and the office towers and condominiums of downtown,
giving the park a lovely gentle glow.
Prince's Island Park is a pedestrian's treasure,
And we're going to miss it.
