Visiting my old home town without leaving the house
I grew up in Oakland, CA and when someone mentioned it in the log with a hyperlink I thought I would take a look. Sure enough there's downtown Oakland
and Lake Merit (home of the storybook playland
). Through the Parks and Recreations
links I was even able to find the old Redwood Heights Recreation Center which was just around the corner from my house on Elinora Ave (my house was at 4559 Elinora Ave).
This was a great place for arts, crafts, movies, splashing in the sprinklers, neighboorhood-wide BBQs and many fond memorys from long ago. I'm glad its still around and providing the same great experiences to kids these days.
