A Green Haven
When the fumes of the busy city streets start to choke you, when the rumblings and exhaust of the cars and buses give you a heachache, when the red-faced men drunk on summer heat and fortified wine start to get you down....go to Forest Park.
A green haven tucked into the west hills, untouched ferns and mossy branches shading an easy path along the burbling creek. It is good therapy for the urban burnout that is sure to affect us all from time to time. If you don't have the time to get out of town, just head up to 30th and NW Upshur and enter the welcoming forested oasis for a dose of the ever-untrendy and entirely real natural world.
