BY: PATRICIA SICKLES I am not the outdoor, rugged type but I really do love nature, especially at sunrise as long as I can walk along a paved surface and not sweat too much. I like amazing birds on the river front and birds of prey in the trees as long as they leave the friendly squirrels alone! The sound of the water flowing out into the stream is calming. and a nice bench or swing along the way is good too if I need to take a break. Sheltered pavilions are a must if it starts to rain. And, honestly, I am not much of a sailor or fisherman but I like to see boats on the water, especially at sunrise, These are a few of my favorite things in Spring Park where this city girl enjoys just the right amount of nature across the street from River Park Inn. So if you are sort of a sissy like me, indulge yourself in the best of nature with all the amenities of paved walkways, comfortable seating and convenient shelters without even leaving town.
