My Beautiful Neighborhood: Castle Hill Park

I am the ferry. I go to Manhattan because it is my job everyday, because I have to take people to work on time.  I am beautiful because people feel comfortable and satisfied because they arrive faster than the train. Watching the landscape, the sunset, sky, I think I am the happiest ferry that exists because the people on board feel good and they arrive safely at their destination. When it rains, people cannot enjoy the beauty of nature.  I am a means of transport so that people arrive on time to their jobs every day. The rocks are like my protectors and my security because they tell me where I have to go.

Rocks by the river

stones water skies bridges airplanes nature in one place
is all I need to meditate I look at the sky and I start to meditate 
I start thinking about my future 
ask God for another day of life and take care 
of those who are no longer with me
they are in the sky birds I think the stars are them 
and they left a deep pain in my heart this place 
is not only a park but for me it means peace and tranquility
where I feel myself I forget the problems for a while


Zilker Park

Zilker Park has been around for a long time, it’s had a big impact on my childhood. There’s a lot of family events I’ve had at the park. When you go to Zilker Park you see a lot of green grass, trees, and bushes which I love. Once you’re out of your car you smell the fresh air and see people playing with their dogs. You’ll see children laughing and running around on the playscape. Sometimes there’s a man that dresses up like a clown and makes anything you’d like from a balloon. Right near the stairs to head down to the river there’s a train that goes around the park. You can get your tickets at the concession stand. Back to the river, that’s where people take their dogs to swim. There’s also people that’ll swim with the dogs. When you head down the stairs to the left you’ll see kayaks visitors can rent to go around the Colorado river. To the right you’ll see the Barton Springs Pool which isn’t as costly as people may think. The water is really cold! But on a hot summer day it’s refreshing–almost. The last time I went to Zilker park was with my baby’s father, his mom, little cousin, and nephew. We watched a play that took place on a hill facing a stage. It was a good play I loved it. Afterwards, we went to the concession stand/snack store that sells anything from soda/water, to nachos,pickles, hot dogs, chips, etc. We got watermelon flavored snow cones and headed home. One other fantastic memory I have at Zilker park was when I used to go to go kayaking along the river. The kayaks are inexpensive as well. They give you an hour or so with your kayak. You’re guaranteed to see amazing horizons along with ducks, and turtles along the way. I’d recommend going to Zilker Park for any kind of occasion whether it’s family functions, baby showers, or birthday parties. There’s something for everyone to do that likes to run around and be active. It’s a very open and happy environment.
