Views of the Neighborhood

This week I went out yesterday to get some shots of the various parks in Port Aransas. I have to admit I have too many photos for one post. I will continue next week. Today I’m going to concentrate on one of the main parks in the city. The Community Park

Port Aransas Parks

This photo is of a softball field.

And a basketball court.

Now to step it up a notch it  is the baseball field house

And the field. Yes, that little yellow sign says 352 feet.

There is also a skate park. (It is the mother of skate parks)

There is a pool. (Water is a little chilly)

Photo of the pool was difficult since it doesn’t open until noon. I managed one before the police arrived..

    1. They were there but were suck a motley crew that I tried to avoid them. There is one shot of a kid going over the rim. Thanks, Charles.

  5. Looks like there’s something for everyone there, John. Being flat, it would no doubt be a great place to ride a bicycle. It also looks like every inch of it is landscaped. I would guess being an island, every part has to be made use of. Good pictures. 🙂 — Suzanne

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. Yes the island is pretty flat except for the dunes. The city has made excellent use of this piece of land.

  7. It looks like a really nice community park, John. Clean, well kept, and it seems to have about everything. Ear scratches to Lucy and Bailey. It was fun to see the pups enjoying themselves. Have a sublime Sunday. Mega hugs.

  8. N.i.c.e. park amenities. The skate park is scary. Wouldn’t want to witness anyone take a fall.
    Lucy and Bailey appear well-behaved during their outing. 😀

      1. Okay, those are a lot of parks for a small town. I say, you all have your priorities duly in place 😉

      2. I still have more to show. The priorities here are amazing. Kids first (I mean using a village to raise the children), pets second. Drinks for everyone.
