I had a beautiful day with a free afternoon and very little pocket change. A park seemed like the most obvious choice. Alps Park is a child’s wonderland, and very fun for adults, too. When I arrived it was full of preschool students (you can tell by their yellow hats) having a picnic with their parents. There were so many areas to explore, including a giant lookout tower to view the entire city and beyond, several roller slides, an obstacle course, a petting zoo and miniature zoo, cart slide going through the forest, and alpine playground equipment. The only thing I regretted was going without a lunch.
