Drake Park and Mirror Pond
NW Riverside Blvd. and Brooks Street
This popular downtown community gathering place hosts many events throughout the spring, summer and fall, including the District's Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration. Features include nearly one half mile of riverfront, acres of open lawn, an outdoor stage, restrooms and small picnic tables. A major renovation project for this park was completed in 2003. The restrooms have been upgraded, pathways throughout the park have been replaced with pavers making the walkway wider, new irrigation and lighting systems have been installed, bike racks have been installed, a seating and viewing area was added at Mirror Pond and the High Wheel has made a triumphant return to the park. Drake Park is more beautiful than ever!
So today Nevada says lets go shopping or a drive, If you knew my husband either one of those things is something he hates to do.So came with a big surprise to me...... I said why? He said I'm bored.
So we decided to do the drive, cause i said that is going to be cheaper than going shopping cause you know i have to buy something. LOL.
So we took Princess my pom, thinking that she would really enjoy going for a nice walk. So in the car we load up. Oh yeh i forgot to mention she gets car sick. So decided to do the park first and hopefully she will like it enough that she will not get sick when we head towards the mountains. Our intention for the day. So the above photo is the history of Drake Park. And some photos of all the poopy ducks. Which i had so much fun watching and taking photos of.
Here is one coming in for a landing and OOOP'S that's ice Miss Princess is looking on, which surprised us that she paid no never mind to them as far as wanting to chase them
Going for a head dive here. Arn't they amazing how they can go head first, wonder what he is after?
Now i thought he was a bit unusual in color don't you think?
