We have been under water for several days, but for a while this afternoon, the sun came out, and I took the opportunity to snap a few photos in Bowen Park, which is right in downtown Nanaimo. As you can see, Bowen Park is well-treed, but it also has many other attractions. At one end of the park there is a soccer field. At the other end is the Curling Club. Within the park there are tennis courts,
an outdoor swimming pool,
There is a very popular seniors' recreation centre next to the bowling green.
Farther inside the park, there used to be a group of totem poles. I tried to find them today, but they had disappeared. It turns out that they were rotting and considered a safety hazard, so they have been removed. Timing is everything. I wish I had taken photos of them before they were pulled down.
There is still the duck pond, though, near where the totem poles were, and now there appears to be a fountain that I don't remember.
I don't remember this bridge, either. I suspect it's been a long time since I took a walk in Bowen Park. Thanks to JarieLyn for this assignment. For more Friday Photo Shootout posts, just click on the camera in my sidebar.
