Hidden park treasure

Pictures above were taken at Hagemeister Pond Preserve, a lovely park tucked away in my fair city of Crystal, Minnesota.  The street address is 6427 41st Avenue North.  The park has a gazebo with picnic benches on a hill overlooking the pond. Additionally, a walking trail and floating walkway over a portion of the pond provide for a lovely place to stroll and observe nature.

I believe a large portion of the reserve was donated to the city by a devoted resident, Mr. Hagemeister, a long time chemistry teacher in the Robbinsdale School District.  Gary Joselyn, a former Crystal city council and school board member donated the rear 16,000 square feet of his property to the city of Crystal in 2003. What a great legacy this park has become!
