A Perfect Friday
After i grabbed my grub, i headed to one of my favorite parks in the universe (Nielsons Grove). There is nothing too special about the park itself. It has the usual park accesibles... grass, trees, walking trails, ponds. But what makes it special is the history. About 100 years ago a man from Denmark immigrated to Utah and built a beautiful park for the community. Over time it was destroyed by marshes and wetlands. The city bought the land back from the original family and rebuilt it just as Mr. Grove designed it 100 years ago. When we moved to Utah from Denmark in 07', it was the first park we visited and for some reason, it brings our whole family peace.
