Hilltop Park Improvement

Dulce and I visit the hilltop park behind our apartment complex once or twice a week.  There is a monument on the top of the hill, a couple small wooden pavilions, and a dirt walking trail lined with random exercise equipment.  I have never been up there and not seen other people.  It's particularly popular with older Koreans that live in the area who go up there to exercise or have a picnic meal at a pavilion.  I take Dulce up there because the area around the monument is the largest area of grass we have nearby for her to run around in.

There are a few dirt paths leading to the top of the hill and there is also a long set of cement stairs.  The stairs were crumbling and broken which made them great to look at but hazardous to walk up and down.

One day, not too long ago, a construction project began.

Instead of repairing the old cement, new wooden stairs were installed on a metal frame on top of the old stairs.  A new railing and light poles were also added.

There used to be a very small cement slab at the base of the stairs surrounded by tall shrubs.  The shrubs were removed, the ground was leveled and this large seating area was made!

It's amazing how quickly this project was completed and what a big improvement was made.  Job well done, construction workers, we will enjoy this new part of our hilltop park!

"Time is free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it you can never get it back."
