Kings Highway (Dallas) – 10/27/2018

The walk started at Kidd Springs Park passed through residential streets to 12 Hills Nature Center. We returned through a commercial area to our start.

Entrance to Japanese Garden in the park.

Only thing I saw that looked Japanese.

Turns out this lantern had been sent to the 1933 World’s Fair by the Japanese government. After the fair Ethel Buell bought it. Upon her death in 1964, her daughter donated it to the Dallas Parks Department. It was placed here in 1971.

Nice landscaping in the garden.

Below the dam is some graffitti.
