I thought Fall was the best time to be in the park, to see the trees in bright yellows and greens. But it can be nice in the Springtime as well. The trees are covered with pink and white flowers. Shakespeare's Garden is blooming. The Great Lawn is green. The turtles come to the surface in Turtle Pond. People take over the fields and couples ask for pictures by The Lake.
