I was looking for a park that I could jog. I was advised by my friend here. This is a very nice park. Rose garden was lovely!! I would like to have a picnic with lunch if I go next time!! ジョギングができる公園を探し、友人にここを勧められました。 とても自然豊かでキレイな公園、ローズガーデンもあります。 ランチを持ってピクニックも良さそうな場所です‼︎

No better place to race than Bush Park, kids 7-18 need to contact Salem Soap Box Derby and get involved.
