The Creek Park

In Japan, small spaces are put to good use and this little park near where I live is a good example.  From the road and the sidewalk, there is this little wooden path down to the creek area.

I often see children playing, but the day I took these pictures, there was only a bird in the water.

You can walk in the creek without getting your feet wet.

There are many pretty flowers and even a drinking fountain.

This little park is one more reason to love where I live.

Yes, that is a beautiful little get away.
Isn't that an egret? And there's flowers and you get some exercise with stairs and walking.

That's a wonderful use of space :) Some cities could use a little more nature in them.
