NY: Westchester County- Katonah- Lasdon Park (Winter)

An under rated four season park with lovely child friendly events.

I posted about Lasdon park in the Fall where I also referenced summer and spring events. Recalling its many paths and one specifically to a Chinese Pagoda I was the first to break the trail during this last snow fall.

While many of the other trails had already been dug out by a snow blower, I loved this one hadn’t. I followed the slight divot in the snow which I assumed was hiding the trail. I saw animal tracks and trees reflecting in the untouched snow.

While there were several cars on the other side of the park for their special winter event, it was me and the song of the many blue jays playing for me as I made a grand entrance into the Chinese garden area. If you have little kids I highly recommend checking out their website for their many changing seasonal events.

The pond had an icy cover against which the surrounding trees reflected like the mirrors in a fun house. Amusingly I followed the now plowed path ensuring to keep the untouched snow unscathed.

Now I was at a metamorphical fork in my road. Do I cautiously return along my path or do I take that bamboo stick I spy and be the first to break through the snow?

Well I have a double digit birthday coming up so let’s try it out. Breaking the snow it is 🙂 What a gift to be present!
