There are still some visible sand pits which I thought was pretty odd. It was strange because it was so open, usually metroparks are heavily wooded. I hope that they plant more trees, the grass was a little wild so maybe they're letting it revert back on its own.

I passed these two cute little stations, those stairs lead to no where, there was just a field behind them. Maybe there used to be picnic tables or something there. The bird house was really cute, I didn't see any eggs or birds around it, but there were all sorts of pretty birds flying around. Next time I'll have to take a bird watching book with me so I can figure out what they are.
When I got to the very tail end of the trail, I was stopped by geese. There were so many in the flock and had lots of babies with them. I thought the guard one was kind of cute, he stayed in the middle of the path and stared me down until they all got across. I didn't want to go through them since geese are really protective, so I waited until they waddled to the other side towards a pond.
Do you have any metroparks near you? Which are your favorite?
