What a joy to read about the restoration of Memorial Park on Sorin’s Bluff! (RE, Aug. 4)
As a child, we would climb the path on the south side, off Bush Street, to find the first crocus offspring.
As a girl scout, we made many a “some mores” around the large stone fire ring. Later, as a Girl Scout leader, we often trekked up the road to have a breakfast picnic.
Our family had a tradition of breakfast picnics up there on MEA weekends, even after some of the children had left home.
As young people we had many a wiener roast up there at any hour of the day or night. (It never closed.) I can remember watching the beautiful sunrise from up there, as a finale to the prom.
After World War II, that was one thing my returning friend wanted to do: Climb the Sugar Loaf steps and view our beautiful city on the river.
It is so good to see, at age 89, that I can once again, safely drive up there, and feast on all the glories of nature.
