Highland Park

recommendation by erin

This is a charming park that really sets the bar for what constitutes a “city park.” Frederick Law Olmsted designed the central building and it sort of reminds me of a Japanese Pagoda with a Western sensibility. Perhaps it’s the park’s flowers that really make the Japanese garden connection for me. Anyways, the park is beautiful and full of foliage that spans twenty acres. They have trails that are open to bicyclists, hikers, horse-back riders, ad skiers.
