burg Park is a beautiful place to visit and the best part about it is that my hubby and I don't have to take a plane, train, or bus to get there. All we do is hop in the car and after a short drive we are there. The park is situated on seventeen acres and is located on the shore line of Anchor Bay. The park offers many things to do like fishing, picnicking, tennis, volleyball, and concerts on Tuesday evenings. The music for the concerts is sometimes provided by the Tom Allport band which is a sixteen piece "swingin" group that plays a blend of traditional, Latin, jazz, and big band tunes. You can either choose to purchase food and drinks at the concession stand or pack a little picnic basket of your own. There is no swimming at the park but it does have a boat and ski launch. The park also has a five hundred foot pier that you can walk out on and fish off of if you choose to do so. The pier looks just beautiful lit up at night. About the only down side for us is that no dogs are allowed.
We feel very fortunate in that the area where we live has so many wonderful things to offer. Although I have traveled in the past, and most likely will again in the future, it has never really been my cup of tea. I would much rather hang around my own neighborhood doing all of the things I love to do.
One of my favorite things to do at Brandenburg Park, besides watching the boats, and talking to people is sitting back and observing the swans and ducks. I have always been fascinated by them. I think they are such amazing and beautiful creatures. I also love to listen to the water as it laps up against the sea wall on the shore. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place to visit.
Here are a couple of guys we met on a recent visit who are having a great time on Jet Ski's.
At the end of the pier there are benches to sit on. It's a great place to watch the yearly fireworks display.
Oh, oh, what are these? Sometimes the fish flies can be annoying but on most days you will find them hanging on to the posts on the pier and not really bothering anyone.
This swan was very friendly. I think it was looking for a little snack.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some pictures of one of my favorite places to visit. Brandenburg Park is such a pretty place to spend time in on a lovely spring, summer, or fall day.
I hope all of you are enjoying these beautiful summer days we have been having. I was at Michael's the other day and I am already seeing pumpkins and fall flowers. It won't be long and fall will be here again.
Many blessings to all of you ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
