We took a walk around Goodale Park tonight. It’s a beautiful park with a lovely little pond in the northeast corner, and it was getting a lot of use tonight. I like the view over the pond, with the high rises of north downtown just visible over the treetops.
Parks add so much to a neighborhood!
It’s Comfest weekend in Columbus, and the Unkempt Guy, JV and I decided to wander down to Goodale Park to check out the festivities over the lunch hour today. We chowed down on some brats, listened to music at several of the venues, strolled past the Peace Tent, and then hightailed it back to the office as a storm rolled in. Alas, we didn’t quite make it, and despite our pathetic trotting attempt in the final stretch, a cloudburst soaked us to the skin.
It’s sunny once more in Columbus, though, and Comfest is a very fun, interesting event that makes Columbus a better place to live. If you’re in town this weekend, check it out — and don’t let that Temperance statue dissuade you from grabbing a few beer tokens to add to your festive mood.
Tonight Kish and Richard and I had dinner at The Pearl, made a visit to Whit’s Frozen Custard, and then took a jaunt around the Short North. When I returned to my car at the corner of Park and West Russell Street, across from Goodale Park, I was treated to a spread of red flowers, glowing crimson and looking deep and velvety in the approaching twilight. It’s just one of many beautiful garden areas you find all around Goodale Park.
