Shadow Shot Sunday







Kissena Park, Flushing, N.Y.

Kissena Park is an ideal location to both relax and participate in fun outdoor activities. The beautiful Kissena Lake, flanked by weeping willows and shady trees, creates an idyllic setting to enjoy a sunny day. Stroll through the park to take in all of the lush flora and fauna and be sure not to miss the historic tree grove. The dozens of species of trees in the grove are some of the most exotic in the world. In fact, the grove got its start as part of a 19th century horticultural nursery for the New York region.

That looks like heaven to me - how lovely! I love the picture you have for your header too - what a glorious place you come from!

This is a great looking park. As a kid I had heard of Kissena, but don't remember ever being there. A park like this is most welcome in the densely populated areas of NYC. Close enough to home but feeling a world away. The pond and trees make these views perfect!

All of those fallen autumn leaves on the ground are so pretty! Raking them into big piles and jumping into them would be fun. It sounds like a magical park!
