Walking in Bellvue state park

It was another lazy afternoon, we were sitting on the couch and planning to go somewhere. However, whatever places we wanted to go, all of them were on the verge of closing for the day, even the mall.

 

At last we decided to walk somewhere is some state parks. Philadelphia is very green due to rain through the year unlike California, and full of beautiful state parks.Anyway, my sister decided to go to Bellevue state park which was near her home, and very serene place for evening or morning walk. 


Till now the day time is long, so reaching at 6 in the evening didn't make much difference. We had enough sunlight to walk for an hour. 
Going to the parking was a nice and serene experience. The narrow jungle road suddenly opened to a vast green meadow.  After parking our car, we took a path not knowing where to go. The path led to picturesque little lake with a beautiful wooden bridge made it looked a like fairy tale village. People had been fishing on the little lake.


 After crossing the fairy tale wooden bridge, we started walking on a path. We started our leisurely evening walk just to freshen up the mind. We just walked around the little lake enjoying the lush greenery around, and our children enjoyed the little activities which are kept beside the path. We only saw a very little part of that vast park. It was actually, Mr. William du Pont’s, property which was acquired by State of Delaware, and converted into a state park. 


Though I read about the mansion, one possessed by Mr. du Pont, but I couldn’t locate it. I read that the mansion was equipped with all the finest facilities, but I didn’t see it. Maybe it was on other part of the huge state park.


 Anyway, it was a very enjoyable walk amid bright green trees, and huge sweet green grasslands. Inside the grassland we saw little rabbits hopping here and there. The deer were seemed unfazed by the presence of human in their habitat. Humans were also respectful to them. I can say both of them were unfazed by the presences of each other.

One of the first things we learned when we moved out of California was that in other places you get rain all year, not just November to March. The park looks so serene and what a cute bunny.

Hello, it is a very pretty park. I am glad to read that Pennsylvania is acquiring more park lands.
Pretty view of the water, trees and the cute bunny. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

What a serene place for a walk. I would like to visit that park and also the DuPont mansion and gardens. More the gardens than the home.
