Oak Meadow Park

It's time to go out & feel like a kid again. Oak Meadow park is free for residents, and yes, you have to show your driver's license.

Parking is hit or miss. If you can't get parking directly in the main lot, continue up the hill and turn right onto University. You usually can find a spot there, and walk down the steep trail.
Or, if it's after hours, I think you can park across the street in the doctor's lots. There's actually a large number of office buildings back there, including my opthalmologist, Dr. Basham who rocks. He weilds a mean laser for cataract surgery or detatched retinas.

So, back to the park. What I love is going on the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad. It's not a long trainride, so it's good for very young kids. But it's just fun. And then there's the restored carousel. Who doesn't love to feel 7 years old again on a horsey going up & down to carnival music?
