Wilderness Park

Wilderness Park is my favorite Downey park. It is the biggest park in Downey, with two lakes (stocked with fish if you like that kind of thing) and lots of paths for biking, walking, or whatever takes your fancy.

The park is the perfect place to go after Christmas to try out your new toys. A family with several young kids was having a great time playing with their new remote-controlled racing cars.

My daughter and I also played with our new toys. She had lots of room to try out her new skateboard, and I got to practice my panning technique with my new camera.


  1. Wilderness Park is where we got married in 1979. We were one of the first, if not the first, couple to get married there. The adventure came complete with a beautiful weeping willow, a walk across the bridge where the ducks were unwilling to give way, and a bee inside the veil. Our processional was to the tune of "Rocky". Crazy kids...

  2. I didn't know you were the first. But I'm keeping my eyes open for another groom wearing tennies!
