December 11th and 73 degrees in Nashville, TN or Fannie Mae Dees Park Review
Well, we took advantage of global warming today and enjoyed a beautiful day at the park. Fannie Mae Dees Park, that is. I'm thinking about doing a review of all the area parks from the perspective of a 7 and 11-year-old. . .
Jayda's comment about the Fannie Mae Dees, aka "Dragon Park" is, "It was pretty awesome." Naomi's comment is, "It is awesome before 3:00 [when all the school kid's get there], and don't go in our secret hideout!" The girls barely played on the playground equipment, most of their time was spent at the secret hideout, a cluster of shrubs on a hill that have paths weaved through them and form a roof with their evergreeness (I made up that word). It reminded me somewhat of the "Bridge to Terabithia" minus the tragic death!
The reason Fannie Mae Dees Park is called "Dragon Park" is because of a giant mosiac sea dragon sculpture. You can see some good pictures of it here (follow the link). Here are my pictures of it, my camera is not capable of adequately capturing its expanse.
