Metroparks in My World

A park district was created in 1963 to preserve the open space in the Dayton Metropolitan area.Today there are twenty facilities in the Metropark system with many family friendly activities.
This is Taylorsville Metropark, one of my favorite walking places.
Scenes from around the world are at My World.

What a beautiful open space...so green! That's a color we don't see much of in the summer out here in the west! I forget what it looks like...and, what a beautiful sky. Your colors are so perfect!

one more thing...we haven't reserved anything yet for Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta. I am hoping to do that very soon. I think it would be WONDERFUL to see you there. Let's talk when the time gets closer!!! :)

How green that area looks and not a soul on the path! I wonder if you could ride a bike on it?

Hi Carol,
che belle fresche verdi immagini dal tuo mondo.
Il cielo è così azzurro :-))
Sarebbe bello potervi passeggiare...
Buona serata.

Those are beautiful parks photographs. Open space is so important. Raleigh, where I live, also maintains a lot of open space and they are my favorite places.
