Last weekend Tim and I went to visit the International Peace Gardens in Salt Lake City. It's a lovely group of small gardens representing various countries from around the world - Finland, Greece, England, Japan, Vietnam, China, France, Sweden, etc. There are picnic areas and playgrounds adjacent to the Peace Garden where kids were hunting for Easter Eggs and families were having barbecues. Lots of children were dressed in their colorful Easter best while their parents posed them next to flowers and trees and statuary. It was a perfect way to spend a sunny spring Saturday morning.
We then moved on to Liberty Park, also in Salt Lake City. This park seems quite popular for runners, cyclists, dog walkers, volleyball and football players, Frisbee enthusiasts, kids who like to roll down hills, and picnickers. It's also enjoyed by those who simply like to stroll while spotting birds, looking at mountain views, perusing whatever might be blooming, and possibly buying prayer flags or a pair of earrings from a local artist. We visit this park quite often. It's also home to an aviary and a Museum of Utah Folk Arts. Indeed there is something for everyone.
