Two years ago, a co-worker introduced me to running laps around the park right beside our workplace. At first I questioned her: why would you ever want to run the same 2.5 km loop around a park several times a week?
Well as winter turned to Spring, then turned to Summer, and Fall, I realised why – Chinguacousy Park is very beautiful, all year long! Because I enjoy the park so much, I thought I’d share with you a collection of photos I took while running last week (though I apologise in advance for them being blurry, as I was actually running while taking these pictures):
This is one of the many flower gardens that can be found throughout the park:
There’s a brand new track for doing speedwork and repeats:
There’s a tropical garden, and greenhouse (that I’ve only visited the once because I was injured and had to walk around the park instead of run):
There’s a small “ski” hill:
A playground for the kids:
There’s also a petting zoo, paddle boats, a skate park, curling and duck ponds:
All in all, I really enjoy my lunches because of the beautiful park right next door that I get to enjoy almost every day!
Question/Sharing: Where do you run?
