That said there are a few things I will miss, and here is one: LAKEWOOD PARK
I've been going to this park since I was a little girl. Every year this is where we'd watch the fireworks on the 4th of July and they had/have these big bench swings my grandmother loved to swing on as we played on the grass.
In high school I went here to hide, because my school was in the next lot to the park. The school is still there, but it's not a grade school, my high school closed a while back.
Over the years I've always come back here to think. To watch the water. To hide from my life.
This is what is left of what it looked like back when I was in high school:
That area is now blocked off due to sinking into the lake :)
But they made it all pretty for the kids on the block - like my boy:
I'm sure there is another park out there that I will love, but nothing will replace Lakewood Park in my heart.
On a side note... seriously I totally knew it was a 1970 Dodge Charger... the movie came out in 1971! HOW COULD IT BE A '79?!! lol
