Stephanie Kelley Sweet, fresh and juicy home grown tomatoes are among my very most favourite food. Our growing season is so brief, we only get to enjoy them for a short time each summer, and that time is now! Garden tomatoes are delicious just as they are, but last week I came across a simple […]
A Walk in the Park is part of the Community Conversations Initiative that has been attracting folks to come take a group stroll through Perth-Andover to imagine new uses for flood prone lands that are now sitting vacant.
The walks take place on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM and meet up next to the P-A Village Office.
These walks have inspired some true Walk Stars to come up with some fabulous ideas for ways to use these lands on the Andover side of the village.
The soil is rich and lush, there is a creek that runs all year long and a huge variety of trees and flowers are growing in profusion.
With vision and commitment from the community, this area could become a gorgeous showplace with many features that could attract visitors from near and far.
Every Walk in the Park has generated new ideas…how about:
- A Public Wishing Well
- A Labyrinth
- Arched Walkways
- Horticultural Gardens (attractive for outdoor weddings or other ceremonies?)
- An Arboretum
- Nature Trails with signs & stories
- Lupine Alley
- Tiny Homes in the trees or nestled among the trees as tourist accommodations. Wouldn’t you love to spend the night or a weekend in a fairy tale like tiny home?
- Yoga and Tai Chi in the park
- Picnic Areas
- Horseshoe Pits
- Archery Range
- A UFO Landing Pad
The possibilities are only limited by our imaginations!
Be part of the walk, bring your ideas, prepare to inspire and be inspired and join the conversation on a Wednesday evening soon!
