Park #12 - Ewing Park

Last year, I took the kids to a different park each week and did a little park review.  I hadn't planned on doing anymore but we went to a park that we hadn't been to before so I thought I would put it on here.

We went to Ewing Park with some friends.  It's a nice little park and it has a bathroom!  I didn't go inside but it was an actual building and not a port a potty or a bush :)  This park had a some really nice trails towards the back that we went exploring on.  It's small and sweet and had plenty of shade and some sun spots too!  It had a pavillion out front and also some picnic tables under the shade trees.

Here's the info I got from Bloomington Parks website -

6.2 acre park located next to historic Ewing Castle in central Bloomington. Mature, native trees provide an excellent shaded area in the summer. Trail head to Hedge Apple Woods Natural Area.
