Walking in Grand Island – No. 3

My third favor place to walk in Grand Island, Nebraska is Eagle Scout Park.  There is a lake in the middle of the park with a 1.01 mile walking trailing.  One of the benefits to walking in Eagle Scout Park is you are able to go in circles with no one judging you.  Unless, you have gone around in circles many, many times, then people have started talking about you.  Or, they have finished their few trips around the park and left.

During the walk around the park, you are able to look at the trees, the waves on the water, and watch the corn grow in the nearby field.  There is a couple of things you need to be cautious about while visiting the park: one Wascally Wabbits; the pole wielding, capped homo sapiens perched on the lake’s edge, who occasionally emerge from the grass carrying their catches; and the swing sets that temps you to bring out your inner child.

Eagle Scout Park almost made it to second favor walking location; however since they are building a huge sport complex next door, I predict the traffic and noise level at the park to increase which will hamper the peaceful walk around the park.

Cohn Arboretum

The Cohn Arboretum in Baton Rouge, the official name “Laurens Henry Cohn, Sr. Memorial Plant Arboretum” is one of the most beautiful places in Baton Rouge.  In the middle it has a pond and surrounded by walking path and trees.  There is even a grapes being grown.  If they fix up the house with period pieces, this place would be historic.
