Crowley Park, Richardson

On a post-dawn walk through Crowley Park, I noticed it has something for everyone.

Whether you picnic with friends in the pavilion,

flop down for some “me” time,

or hit the trail that circles the park

for a flower-flecked walk or run,

and views that soothe.

Have tots with energy to burn? The park has two play areas, this one ringed with trees.

Takin’ a breather without robin the bank

means you sit on a deck

watching ducks and turtles gather.

At ~58 acres, Crowley Park is the second largest of Richardson’s neighborhood parks. What strikes me is the city’s meticulous care in keeping the place pristine. Add me to Yelpers who love Crowley Park.

Correction: In the original post, I stated that Crowley Park is Richardson’s largest. But it isn’t. Breckinridge Park (~417 acres) is. I love Breck, too!
