What Animals Are in Your Local Park?

With a lovely spring weekend day, the city provides a lot of opportunities to hang out and enjoy yourself.  One of these is Lincoln Park.  Not a long walk from us but certainly a quicker bus ride gets you to the park.  It is amazing how quickly the spring transformation is underway.  The trees are rapidly filling out with leaves and the wildlife is also making itself obvious.  There are certainly worse places to be on a weekend.

If you want to ramp up the wildlife, the park also has the zoo which is free to visit.  It had been a while since we went there so we decided to take a look around.  Since you can wander in and out at will, you don’t always end up looking at everything and this time was no exception.  We did visit the big apes which is always a great experience.  Taking in the bats was something I hadn’t done for a while as well.

We could have looked at more but I had a strong urge to find some lunch so instead we went exploring of a different kind.  Maybe not as difficult as living in the wild but the results were certainly good.
