Day 521: WonderWoman told me to walk ...

And  because I know she's right ... I walked.

view from the adjacent elementary school, approaching the park

All the way down to my park. That's right, my park!
Oh the City had it posted as Cedar Grove Park ...

home to a beautiful grove of magnificent Cedars.

But, those of us in the know, know the real name
it is actually ... Grandma's Park!

So named by my grandson's ...
when they were tiny & visited often.

They liked Grandma's Park. 

A lot of people still do.

In case you don't get to see cedars ...

here's a close-up ...

can you almost smell it?

I am going to take you on a walking tour.
If I have to walk, you're coming along.

It's a hidden treasure, so this is just between you and me.

This field is usually filled with la crosse and more.

Tustin places a high priority on schools and parks ...

well used, but rarely crowded. This park offers ...

Nature trail
Basketball (2-1/2 courts)
Playground equipment
On-site parking
Regional trail access
2 Grass volleyball courts

A wonderful space, hidden in busy Orange County.

I took 72 photos on my walk, so ...

I am working on my moderation isssues.

The large stand of tall cedars have
a path and scattered picnic tables ...

And, if you are willing to do a backbend ...

you can look straight up to the tree tops!
After googling I found there are many types of cedar tree.
I believe these are Deodar Cedar.
An excellent evergreen with graceful pendulous branches.

Pyramidal form when young, wide-spreading
and flat topped in old age, often reaching 70' in height.

There are many other trees, and a eucalyptus stand.

I can take this nature path home.

On my way home.
WonderWoman will be pleased.

Once home, I checked the weather on the patio.

 A smile for Sunday ...
