Sand Dune Park-- Abandoned on a Sunday afternoon
With the dune closed for over 8 months, the park is used less than ever. 2:30 on a cool spring Sunday, and the dune was fenced off. The tot lot was empty for the 15 minutes I was there. A half-dozen people quietly walked up & down the stairs. And the park attendant noted that the rest of the park was used much less since the dune was closed. Where parents would once let their young children play in the tot lot while they quietly exercised, now the park's most popular patrons were apparently the squirrels.
