The park looks enchanting. I love this photo with the glass buildings in the background. A melding of city and country in a way.

green grass underfoot and plenty of shady trees overhead, that's a perfect place to beat the summer heat.

You are waiting for these lazy, hot summer days to spend under the cool canopy of the trees, have a picnic on the lawn and watch the world go by. Did I get it right? Have a nice week.

Guy, a beautiful photograph of Victoria Park. I have very fond memories of this beautiful park. I was staying at a hotel across from the park and I would go for early morning walks. There was a group who did Tai Chi at dawn every morning I was there. They were wonderful and the park was the perfect venue. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful park. I love to see city parks in green areas between buildings. They can be so restorative for the soul. When I used to work downtown, I liked to go to one of the parks for lunch and sit under a tree. Very refreshing.
