Once upon a time two people lived in a house in town. They ate a lot and never got enough exercise. Especially in the winter.
Lucky for them, they lived in a town with parks.
And by parks, we really do mean parks.
There’s Byrd Park and Bryan Park, Maymont Park, Dorey Park, The Battlefield Parks, Pocahontas State Park, and the Riverwalk Park…just to name a few.
These parks were good quality parks, too–not nearly on the level of steep mountains or wild forest, of course, but very much preferable to pavement or cubicles.
And so one cold day, they ventured out to Echo Lake Park in Glen Allen–a mere 6 minute drive from their house in town where they eat alot and never get enough exercise. Especially in the winter.
A nice walking path.
Two beautiful (though noisy) water fountains.
A park bench.
After their walk, the two people who never get enough exercise especially in the winter climbed back in their car and drove back to their house in town…much happier and healthier and hungrier than when they’d left.
