officially called Euclid Neighborhood Park,
my girls have dubbed the updated park in our neighborhood “Castle Park”.
what used to be a trio of rusty 1970’s tetanus-traps
— including a merry-go-round, swing set and crazy see-saw —
is now a colorful, kid-safe castle-inspired fun zone.
if this sanitized play area feels too restrictive,
bring a ball of your choice for free play
in the neighboring field
or just run in it freestyle.
consider this a personal invitation.
