When you see people of all age groups and many different ethnicities together and interacting, you know you've stumbled upon a good venue. Such is the case at LeBauer Park. The above photo was taken at the playground at the park. While the view with the giant cement letters, spelling LEBAUER, and the Janet Echleman sculpture "Where We Met," is the view receiving the most publicity, the entire park is extremely photogenic and equally delightful.
Today's photos remind us of the 1950's, back when times were simpler. People are having so much fun interacting with each other; we don't even see anyone in the photos using their cell phone. These photos are proof positive that Carolyn LeBauer's final wish has been granted. It was her dream that assets from her estate be used "for the creation of a public park for the benefit and enjoyment of the general population of Greensboro, particularly children and their families."* Mission accomplished!
Today is the First Friday of the first of the "-BER" months, and there will be lots of people and activities downtown. We hope you have a chance to join in the fun and to spend time in LeBauer Park. Regardless of what you do this weekend, have a safe and happy Labor Day.
