May 9, 2019: Crescent Park, Moose Jaw

 

I enjoy green public spaces and was glad to find the small prairie city of Moose Jaw had set aside a nice space for walking, playing and relaxing.  The grounds of Crescent Park are nicely maintained, as you can see in these photos.  Lots of birds were chirping in the trees and ducks enjoyed the parks waters.

Crescent Park was designed in 1911 and is just a block from the city's main street.  It covers over 28 acres. The park is centered on Spring Creek.  A series of paths follow the banks of the creek and are part of the community's trail system (Rotary Trails of Moose Jaw).

Scattered around the park are various monuments and flower gardens - even a time capsule.  The park has an outdoor pool, amphitheater, a playground and some lawn bowling lanes.  The park adjoins a museum, art gallery and public library.
