Last week’s Wacky Wednesday Walk was at Glenville Woods in Tarrytown; that little park off 119 that we’ve driven by loads of times. One mama told me that when they pulled in today her son said, “I’ve always wanted to come here!”
I felt the same way and was pleasantly surprised by what we found.
As we gathered for the hike, the kids spent some time in the little playground that is visible from 119 when driving by. We soon left the play area and headed north toward a peaceful pond replete with families of ducklings and goslings. We took our time crossing a beautiful footbridge that crosses the pond and it’s feeder stream before heading up the hill along the orange trail.
It was a big crowd and our hikers spread out all along the trail, taking the short yellow loop before heading back down the hill to the pond. The end of the hike was spent with more pond exploration (during which my kid splooged as usual, much to her chagrin), playground time, and grown-up chatting. Wacky Wednesdays have been a big hit, lately. I’m looking forward to more.
