Wild East Lawrence Walk

Ken Lassman has created a map and podcast for you to take yourself on this walk, starting at either South Park (near the gazebo) or on the Burrough’s Creek Trail. Try the walk in different seasons to see what you can discover for yourself! The walk starts at South Park, and a shorter version of the walk starts at the Burroughs Creek Trail.

You can listen to the podcast here.

You can access the map of the neighborhood here.

My Heart, My Home, My Heart – Our Song!

Our song is forthcoming here by way of a video of Kelley Hunt performing it. We wrote this song by first crowd-sourcing (brainstorming together) words and lines that speak to us of the spirit of the neighborhood. Caryn and Kelley then composed a song, which Kelley arranged. We can’t wait to share it with you!

The song will also be available as a free download.
