I'm quite familiar with this park, as I live right down the road and often go for a run through it. It's a lovely, large park that connects to the Westvale Park through a little path way. That park will have to be saved for another day - we ran out of daylight before we could get to it.
Perhaps you have noticed, I'm a little distracted with Shadow & Maya and haven't shown any photos of the park yet! Let me indulge myself just a little more and introduce these Alaskan Malamute beauties. They are the nicest, furriest, softest dogs ever! Shadow, who is a giant and still growing at only 10 months old, and Maya, about 2 years old, are best friends and so sweet. We were hard pressed to finish the shoot in time because every person in the park wanted to pet them. They were the highlight! From what I hear, these guys have it made, with a custom dog house on a half acre of property. Ah, the life!
Alright, now I must drag myself back to the main purpose, and show more scenic photos of the park.
There is a beautiful brick, tree lined pathway that wraps around most of the park, which leads into the woods towards the Westvale park at one point.
Follow this path through the woods to Westvale Park
In the middle of the park is a nice big pond with a fountain in the middle.
In front of the pond, when you first drive in, there is a big green field on the right, and a woody area on the left. A baseball field is on the left too but we didn't get photos of it. There are a lot of great photo-ops in this park - an hour and a half wasn't enough to grab them all!
Walking past the playground (no photos of that either), and the baseball field, there is a picnic area.
Behind the picnic area are some hard to spot tennis courts, some woods and a fence. We ran into a whole herd of deer on the other side of the fence.
And that's about it! Thanks for modeling the Pascack Brook Valley Park, Shadow and Maya!
