The kids loved the first exhibit- it's a giant basketball court with hoops galore and large ball trajectories that the kids could interact with and run around.
As we entered the park, Jeff spotted this little teeny tiny frog amongst the gravel path.
The kids loved climbing around on Funky Bones.
I hope that Teagan can always feel this kind of joy!
I LOVE THIS FACE!
Although... he seems a little unsure about this face!!
This is really fascinating. This is Indianapolis Island. Last summer, 2 people spent time living in this space. Sometimes together, sometimes in solitude. Visitors to the park could bring them gifts and messages. They had a boat- they weren't stranded or anything. I spent a lot of time pouring over the blog the inhabitants wrote while they were there. I'm hoping there will be new inhabitants soon- I would love to participate by interacting with the next set of artists who live there!
This is Eden II. The ship is out in the water. On the shore is a guard shack. You can walk up onto the little porch of the shack and peer into the windows. In the shack is a set of monitors- and you can "see" inside the ship. There is video playing of the people on the ship (there aren't really people on the ship- it's a video). It's a neat concept.
Best of all, the kids just enjoyed being out and about in nature, walking trails, climbing special benches, discovering tiny frogs and pretty flowers and catching a glimpse of a squirrel and lsitening to birds.
And one last trip to Free Basket before we got back in the car.
Art and nature. A lovely combination in My City!
