Charles Perkins Park...

Spent some time last week exploring a City park just down the street from my house. Charles Perkins Park is a little gem of place on East Ferry just past Jefferson.

Here's the slide show.

I really didn't know there was a tennis court so close to home. And the basketball courts, first rate. Really an amazing little park. Here's the map! Ten years in this neighborhood and my first time in the park...right across the street from the Hamlin Park Historic District.

Oh...and the houses surrounding the park, all occupied! Yes, I checked.

The park is named in Honor of my father, who was the president of the Hamlin Park Association for many years. Check out the plaque near the East Ferry entrance
