One of the nicest spots on Orlando’s east side is Downey Park. It’s off Dean Road and can be seen from East Colonial Drive, a major artery in the O’do metro area. You get a great view of the park if you’re headed east bound on Colonial.
Today I took it upon myself to familiarize myself a little better with it; I’ve gone by a jillion times but I don’t think I’ve ever gone all the way through it in the more than half a century I’ve been in Orlando.
Very glad I did. Lovely place. It’s not one of our four parks in Orange Co. that feature camping, but it’s a very nice all purpose park and I know I’ll be visiting again.
Got several photos. Only fond of one of them right now, truth be told. So it’s the featured foto with this post. This was with my LG cell phone, will get more before long with the good cam. I will be back there in the near future.
Hope this posting finds you well. And I hope you’re taking some time to visit your Mother these days…
