Headed out to Loose Park today just to wander. Gray days are often good for photographs as the light is very gentle and doesn't wash out what colors there are. A little cool. First thing I saw (below) was a bride and groom having pictures taken..this is not unusual in Loose Park at all.. as I approached I asked if I could take a couple of shots too. They had just ( 10 minutes before) gotten married and were now having a picnic.
Above and below, congratulations to newlyweds Clint and Meg.... what a beautiful setting.....
Flowering trees were in full bloom....
Way early for roses, but still plenty of flowers in the Garden.
Not too many people in the Park today, but still many walkers and folks were using the main shelter house. There's a new lighting array being installed in the Park... should be very, very nice.
For the first time in many years the Throne Room will be in Corinthian Hall and it has been gloriously decorated by Museum Staff and volunteers from the neighborhood. Children will love this and each child gets a toy.
The new Redbridge Bridge art installations were dedicated Friday. Top photo the old Redbridge in the foreground, the new Redbridge in the background. Above, all along the bridge are images of pioneer leaders of early Kansas City.
There are also cut-outs that extend from the bridge with information on the area and surroundings with great views.
Above, the old bridge from above... it's been totally rehabbed and is now part of a walking trail... no vehicles allowed...
On hand for the art reveal were Councilman Scott Taylor, Councilman John Sharp, three re-enactors, and Mark McHenry Director of Kansas City Parks and Recreation.
Mr. McHenry surrounded by guests from the Hillcrest Community Center who attended the presentation.
