If you said those words to someone who isn’t familiar with The Woodlands, they might think you’re homeless, but people who live around here know what you mean. We drove to the “middle” of The Woodlands yesterday to visit our daughter and her husband, and there were so many people out jogging, walking dogs, riding bikes, pushing baby carriages, and playing golf that I remarked to Jim, “We live in a park.”
When we got back home, I took Fred for a walk along the trail, and lo and behold, we ran into a park ranger, riding in an ATV, checking things out along the pathway. I wonder how many places have park rangers checking on things in their neighborhoods? It’s actually kind of neat. We passed Sawmill Park and spotted a group playing soccer, and another group on the tennis courts. Pretty soon, the pool will be swarming with kids, out there yelling their heads off and having a great time.
We’re truly fortunate to live in an area with so many recreational opportunities, so many trees, and such natural beauty. It’s one of the reasons we moved here. It just makes you kind of sad to see any bit of litter thrown to the side of the roads, or to see people parking in someone’s yard. Don’t they get it? We’re living here for the beauty of it. Let’s keep it that way! Litter and ruts in a yard aren’t beautiful.
