Beacon Hill Park
The park is right next to downtown, and extends to the waterfront. The park contains a cricket field, large playground for kids, lots of ponds with ducks and swans, an aviary, a children's zoo with farm animals and peacocks, beautiful trees, free concerts in the summer. I think the park is the most spectacular in Spring when all the cherry and plum trees are in blossom, and in Autumm when the maple and other deciduous trees are in full color, interspersed with the huge evergreen trees. I also like Spring because there are many broods of baby ducklings, which are so adorable. When I was a child almost every Sunday we would go to the park and feed the ducks bread crusts that we had collected in a brown bag all week long. I really liked looking at all the birds in the aviary too. Above the zoo is a hill that you can drive up to overlook the waterfront and across the straight, Port Angeles and the Olympic Mountains. Port Angeles is only 18 miles away and at night you can see cars driving up and down the streets.
