How simple can a park be?   Shareology found out recently in a visit to Gold Metal Park, next to the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.   She actually started to make a list of the elements, as the park seemed the utmost in simplicity.  Surprisingly, she counted five:     

  1. a hill
  2. grass
  3. trees
  4. paths
  5. benches

With only these 5 elements, let’s see what simplicity looks like:

Are all parks this functional and thoughtful? for your doggie....

 

A View from UNDER a Bridge.....

 

Shareology revisited last week and is amazed what a quick and powerful walk it is to the top of the Hill.  Get lost around the Guthrie, take the Stone Arch Bridge across the Mississippi or go in the door of Mill City Museum, and enter the Ruined Courtyard.   Sublime.

Would I have walked to the very end of the Guthrie bridge if I knew what it looked like from the river?  It was my Graduation Day in May of 2008....I had already done all the scary stuff...this bridge out over the river?  Piece of Cake!

If ya hang out by the river, sooner or later you're gonna run into the Segway Tour....

Or as they are also called:  human on a stick!  If it looks like fun, give it a try this weekend:

For those who are wondering, the above is not an ad, but just the result of a quick google.   There must be a marketing heart beating beneath the Segway motors:  Parked at St. Anthony Main was a teensie car HEAVILY branded with Human On a Stick.  If you’re following #SMBMSP photos, you’ve already seen the car.   Well, that’s it — have a great weekend!
