Further along my walk is the restored picnic area. It is nestled between the sprawling homes of Colorado Avenue and the golf course. In recent weeks they have finished the restoration with new picnic tables and landscaping. The space is welcoming and inviting – a cool respite tucked back in the trees and reflective of the period when Kessler Park was imagined by George Edward Kessler, a city planner. Today the area surrounding the picnic grounds and the golf course are listed on the National Historic Register. It is a beautiful corner of our neighborhood with lovely old stone benches and a view to the golf course. One of my favorite places to rest as I make my way.
