Veteran's Park

This property was once a large gravel pit. It was known as Granger's Pond for many years, renamed after LMP took over operation of it some time ago. When I was a Mentor Firefighter, we would be called there frequently when fishermen lit fires to ward off the evening chill. The people in the new housing development across the lake moved out there from Cuyahoga County, and many apparantly had never seen a campfire before, causing us to reluctantly tell the guy to put it out, inspiring some choice words from him about the "outsiders" moving in.
Lots of dogs walk their owners here too.

Lovely painting, Jim. This is a great place to walk with your dog...or your camera. Fall is my favorite season to visit Veteran's Park.
