If you have not been out to the park in a while, it might be time to make a trip out and see the Christmas Decorations that Scott, Pat, Steve, Aldaberto, Michael, Joe, and Michael have designed, constructed, and placed in the park. Most of the decorations are located around the Grand Lawn and Pavilion, located next to the parking lot on the top of the hill. There is a cut out of Santa Claus, several nut crackers, presents with bows, look in some of the trees and you will spot some tiny elves, a huge cut out of a wreath that is hung on the pavilion. THERE IS ALSO A BIG MAILBOX FOR KIDS TO DROP OFF LETTERS TO SANTA CLAUS.
These guys did a great job making and hand painting all of these cut out decorations. I hope you get a chance to come out and see them.
