Parks Project

2010-10-07 : I've always wanted to go visit all the little parks near where I live, be systematic about it and make a big map with push pins and so on. Well, I'm doing it. I've got a map which I glued to a big sheet of foam board, and I'm going to see how many parks Katie and I can visit.

Park List
The location of a park is its center. Parks are ordered by radius, then azimuth. Parks in parenthesis are not labeled on map (Rand McNally 2008 "streets of Saint Louis").
