A New Park in the Making

A New Park
with Good Fences!

The city of Virginia Beach sent their¬†Outdoors Newsletter today, encouraging us to stop couch surfing and get outside! They listed new places to explore, so I didn’t waste any time. Right after lunch with hubby…and a short jaunt to the Apple store…I stopped at the Lake Lawson/Lake Smith Natural Area.

It’s a 42-acre preserve with over 12,000 feet of shoreline. It offers fishing, kayaking, a boat ramp, picnic shelter, playground, paved and soft trails for walking. Fencing is in place to stabilize the shore to prevent erosion and re-establish native vegetation. Lots of good fences!¬†

Click on any photo to bring up a slide show, mouse over for captions. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll keep you updated on the progress, as I intend to visit again.
