Theodore M. Berry International Friendship Park

Finn and Gizmo are co-hosting an event ~ Park Day, April 26th.
Stop by their blogs for information.
Now on with my Park Day Post
An award-winning display of sculpture and flora representing five continents and also featuring a riverside bike trail and walking paths.
It serves as a lasting tribute to world unity and global understanding.
The park itself snakes along the Ohio River.
 A marvelous display of international public art, stroll the Path of Man, which intertwines with the Path of Nature, so visitors are never far from a sensory treat. Sculptures featured along the Path of Man include the Castle of Air Pavilion
I, Sweet William The Scot, am very small at the entrance.
Look how the trees reflect. 
 Every pictures is a reflected image.
 I have reflection love!!
That's my Lee with the blonde hair taking the photo and her friend who Frankie Furter calls Ms. Janet.  When my Lee has been in the hospital I stay with Ms. Janet at her Condo.
 Each side is composed of three concave mirrors.
The grand design of the park drew its inspiration in part from a child’s friendship bracelet.
Two intertwining walkways guide park visitors through gardens of the continents in a perpetual celebration of international peace and friendship.
 This area also includes a story-telling circle.
  The park has areas which represent each of the continents.
 Stroll the park’s Path of Nature to experience the structured beauty of a European garden, or the open freedom of an African savannah and the Australian outback. Scholar stones typical of Asian gardens inspire the imagination with their naturally fanciful shapes and beautiful markings.
 At the far end of the park stands a fifty-foot tower that has panels that sing when the wind blows.
Celebrate hope, courage and freedom’s promise.  An live a life of international peace. 
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
