This sign stands at the entrance way of Balmer Park, located on the northeastern edge of the city. It's a popular place for softball and soccer, with local teams playing and practicing three seasons of the year. There are also a few picnic spots, a small shelter house and a playground.
The photo below shows Lindsay Road, which passes along side the park. It's a quiet road only about 4 miles long. We take walks with the dog up and down this beautiful rural road almost daily, no matter the weather. Both the park and road are lined with ash, oak, maple and hickory, with stands of aspen here and there. In the fall we gather pockets full of hickory nuts. In the future, I hope to post photos of the many wild turkey that also inhabit the area.
