The people of Dayton certainly have a treasure in their parks. It is an expansive park system that offers nearly 16,000 acres of green space in more than 24 parks. While John and I have been in Dayton there have been some pretty warm days, and it is wonderful to leave the hot streets of the city and stroll along a quietly flowing river or to walk down a shady forest path. We probably will only see about six of the parks before we leave Dayton tomorrow. In this posting I will write about a couple of the parks which we have visited in the past two days. On Tuesday we drove to Taylorsville MetroPark. In this park we hiked in to see the site of a massive rock fall (1984) when 375 tons of overhanging stone tumbled down.
