Post-Apocalypse park? This bears further investigation.
On our walk today, Elka and I went to a different park that town has to offer. We'd been before, but around the playground stuff. Today, we took a left turn into a human-free, eerily quiet area that made me think of 1. The post apocalypse or 2. The Chernobyl Exclusion zone.
On a day we have more time (i.e., beeline straight for this park), we will explore this motif further.
