Aloha Sally,

Your photos have been absolutely spectacular! And this one is no exception. It's had fun reading your posts on parks, I'm a park lover myself. At times I'm surprised how little some of ours are actually used, they're such a great place for families to spend time together at a very low cost.

Hi Sally - that is an incredible swim facility!  And great for tennis and playing ball too.  I bet those walking paths have fantastic landscaping.

Have a great weekend!
