For Adults






Final Score


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.
