Ault-imate Park Elegance

Where's Dexter?

I love slithering around through the spring flowers and then hiding for a while.  Sometimes the air makes me sneeze and I scare all the squirrels and birds away.  They're funny.  They just wait a bit and come right back.  Little do they know that I'll still be there. 

      It was a good week for exploring the parks around the city.  We decided to visit Ault Park in Mt. Lookout, celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year.  It was perfect timing with everything in bloom.  Ault Park is home to several varieties of magnolia trees with blankets of daffodils underneath their boughs.  We took a walk along the pathway of themed gardens (cared for by various organizations) that were just beginning to green up and show some color.  

It's a grand park featuring an elegant stone pavilion with a tiered waterfall and lookout points.  Throughout the summer months, the park hosts everything from the Concours d'Elegance Car Show to private parties and events.  "Dances in the Park" offers free entertainment for all ages from local bands. There are picnic grounds and walking trails.  More than enough for anyone in the area to explore and enjoy.
