Located directly across the street from the Park Hotel was The Promenade; the start of a half mile walking path created by the city for the visitors to enjoy.
At the turn of the century it was discovered that exercise was a vital part of staying healthy.
This is the inviting entrance to the park.
Along the way there are fountains of spring water for anyone to enjoy...if you don't mind drinking 140 degree water that is!
Here is one of the many springs where the water surfaces out of the rocks...
Along the way there are several information signs that we enjoyed reading.
Along with the drinking fountains, there were beautiful Victorian style basins for a quick wash of your hands.
A built in chess or checker board! I want one of these in our yard!
Several butterflies made themselves available for portraits!
