Get the picture

Take advantage of the coming break in weather to get out and enjoy one of this community’s most precious assets … Washington Park. Take 12th Street/Oakes west past the ferry terminal and hook up with the loop road that leads to this vantage point above Burrows Bay. Pedestrians only before 10 a.m.
