The setting of several of your recent photos is delightful. Is it a city park? It looks fairly manicured in places, and more rustic in others.


Strong German Influence

There are a lot of parks scattered in and around this little city, run and meticulously maintained by a corps of workers who for the most part are Pennsylvania Dutch. I usually go to Lehigh Parkway, which follows the winding flow of the Little Lehigh River, as well as Trexler Park, and Cedar Beach. The ready availability of these beautiful places makes for a very high quality of life. Now another of my favorite man-made beauties is Manhattan's Central Park.
