One of the things we’ve really enjoyed about California and specifically, our neighbourhood, is the opportunity to spend time in nice parks. We have a lovely park at the end of our street – there are always families there having parties, barbecues, playing sports etc. A few weeks back, our ward had a BBQ in the park and we got the chance to eat some good food and meet some new people. It’s also popular for fitness – there’s some outdoor fitness equipment there, basketball, tennis courts, joggers etc. Often people bring their own gazebos, volleyball nets, football nets, decorations etc. and section off a part of the park for their occasion. Because the weather is always lovely, we find ourselves there most weeks for a picnic and a play.
