Don found it on September 5 when we went to Ancortes for a sew-in. I sew - he explores and shops. After the sew-in we drove to the park - it fills one city block and we drove around the whole thing - stopping so often so I could get "this great shot.
This park was built around 1920 - using native stone. Designed by Jack Lepage - from France - and built by local workers. It will astound and amaze you. Just the logistics of getting those stones up to the park must have been unbelievable. And then to form all the walls - what a feat!!! It took a year to build it, and originally was as a tribute to the soldiers who died in World War I. There is very little about the park on the internet - I would love to learn more. It is the only park like it in this country. Another was planned in another state but they ran out of money and the part that was started was later torn down.
I won't be making many comments in this post (are you shocked and surprised at that?) because the pictures speak for themselves. Click to enlarge - and get ready to be amazed!
