#66 Redbud Park – 5502 E 19th St N
Background: This 7.30 acre parcel of land was acquired from the Unified School District #259 in 1981.
What we did: Taking advantage of the cooler temps we thought it would be a great time to visit a park. Although, let’s be honest, most weekends, we visit at least one park no matter what the weather is doing.
This small park offers a number of soccer fields and a jungle gym for the kids, along with an old school swing set and slide. And my childhood favorite, a merry go round, or roundabout, depending on where you are from. As a kid at Chisholm Elementary my friends and I spun ourselves silly on this thing.
There was also a cement slab park bench that looked like something from a Russian city in the 70’s and while there are a number of trees.. the one picnic table was in the sun, no shade for picnickers.
