This park is a 2-minute drive from campus.
It’s a popular place, especially around lunch time and just after work. But there’s plenty of room for everyone.
Oh yes, and there’s a massive dam.
On the days when I have time, I escape from campus, put music into my ears, and walk around the plaza, up the stairs, and across that dam. It’s peaceful and allows me space to just be for a little while before I have to head back into the salt mines.
