“you’re better off walking 2 minutes down the street to douglas park.”

You know how some schools have “annexes”, that are sort of its own thing, but also clearly connected to something bigger?
Heather Park feels a little bit like that. Just one block north of the incredibly large and popular Douglas Park, Heather has four tennis courts (presumably because Douglas has zero) and a small field used as an unofficial dog area (presumably because Douglas’ fields are very sports-oriented).
Two tiny springy swings in the shape of a duck sit under a tree; no need for anything more given the magnificent playground at Douglas.
Heather is often fairly busy though, a solid example of how a park can become quite popular if it fills two or three core needs very well.
