Ten City Parks

I was reading the main page of MSN yesterday, because it’s my home page, and there was an article about Top 10 City Parks in the nation. What I can’t figure out, for the life of me, is why Fairmount Park wasn’t on this list. Suspiciously, I can’t find the article, only one day later. I’m not going to rip on the other cities’ parks – some of them are quite nice – but I must say that this is a severe omission. Isn’t it the largest city park in the nation? I believe so! Isn’t it full of history? Check! Aren’t there paths, sculptures, graveyards, a zoo, historic mansions? Definitely! Aren’t things being renovated? Yes! (The old Memorial Hall is going to be the home of the Please Touch Museum. This is just one of many old buildings.) Isn’t there a covered bridge? Absolutely! Concerts? Affirmative! There is so much to shout about Fairmount Park, I’m just going to send you to the website. Please explore your city park. It’s for you!
