On a warm sunny day, sunlight was broken by mature trees that lined the path around the pond. The interplay of shadow and sun, of green and gray, created a pastoral scene.

A trash receptacle was set on the lawn well behind a bench and under the shade of a tree.

A mixture of duck feathers and leaves formed a work of abstract art at the lee end of the pond.

The day was calm with no wind so the pond surface became a mirror reflecting the neighborhood beyond.

Because the park was surrounded by neighborhoods, one could either park on the street or park in a parking lot inside the park.

A gardener was fixing a sprinkler on the other side of the pond. His orange shirt was reflected.

A family gathered together under the shade of a tree, and from there paused to admire the pond.

A bench, nestled back under bushes, was shaded. It created a fine place to rest while circumnavigating the pond.
