Communicating with Nature

Spring is right around the corner and you know what that means…. Being outside! 

 

To get ready for the fresh spring air, trees and flowers blooming, and warmer weather we made a phone call to Jeff Edwards, the City of Sand Springs Parks and Recreation Director, to chat about our amazing local parks. We wanted to find out what they have been doing during the winter months.. HINT: revamping and improving our parks for the 2022 season. 

 

Start working on your camera skills now, because you’ll want to record the beautiful walking and hiking trails that are kept pristine by the parks services department. “Boyd Trail was just completed about a month ago and features a completely new walking trail at nearly a mile in length,” said Edwards. They don’t call it Green Country for nothing! 

 

As a bonus to the new walking trails, Edwards shared some other exciting news: “We just wrapped up the parking lot addition at the Keystone Ancient Forest.” The new parking lot will provide easy and safe parking for people who want to hike, walk, run or bike.

 

“Spring hiking activities will pick up with warmer weather approaching.” shared Edwards, and we couldn’t be any more excited!
