Yesterday, Lawn Chess was one of the many activities at Greensboro Beautiful's Parisian Promenade. People far and wide descended upon Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden to enjoy the artwork, music, food, socializing and much more in these public gardens. Poodles, from teacup to giant standard to labradoodles; from privately acquired to rescued, brought their owners out for a stroll. Non-poodles were also welcome!
As open, green space becomes transformed into apartments complexes and shopping, public spaces, such as parks, gardens and greenways, are becoming increasingly important to communities. Greensboro is no exception and Greensboro Beautiful and the Parks and Recreation Department are working hard to provide a great quality of life for our families. In the photo above, the older guy on the right appeared to be providing his young chess partner with pointers about chess with the giant lawn pieces. At the Parisian Promenade, children of all ages enjoyed the afternoon. Stop back for a few more photos this week.
