Ashuelot River Park, Photo Album

This week my article for the New England Photography Guild celebrated Keene, New Hampshire's beautiful Ashuelot River Park.  The park is a lovely 157 acre natural oasis in the center of  Keene featuring wonderful open spaces and lovingly maintained gardens.  Radiating from the main garden are trails which wind along the Ashuelot River and into its wildlife rich wet lands.  For more detail check out my article on the New England Photography Guild Blog.

As before, I am using my personal blog this week as an album of additional pictures of the park.  Check them out and come visit  in any season. It is easily accessible. Heading west from Keene's Central Square along West Street it is across from the Colony Mill.

Park Gardens and open spaces are home to strolling, Picnics and even Yoga Classes.  The gardens are maintained by the city and a dedicated group of volunteers.

The Jonathan Daniels trail heads north from the gardens following the Ashuelot River
The trail honors Jonathan Myrick Daniels, a native of Keene who, at the age of 26, was, killed for his work in the American civil rights movement. The trail runs close to the river for a the round trip distance of 1.75 miles.
