Yesterday was a beautiful day in Winston Salem and I didn't have any work scheduled, so I loaded up the crew and went to Tanglewood Park. The local city owned park is nationally known for its beautiful and challenging golf courses, but it is much more than just a golfer's paradise. The park has hosted many professional tournaments over the years and the citizens of Forsyth County are lucky to have such a great facility. One of our first stops was the Duck Pond. In season, the pond has fishing available, watercraft for a lazy ride across the pond, basketball courts and just nicely mowed banks to rest and relax. We spent a little time there and then when over to one of the many trails and walked for a couple of miles. The Yadkin River is right beside the park and offers a relaxing and comfortable sense of peace for your walks. We were fortunate to come across the Appalachian State Cross Country Team resting from one of their runs. The Park hosts many events yearly for the area's local colleges and universities. The ASU team sure looked young, fit, and full of life!
A short walk from the trail area is the horse riding area. We walked around and were able to enjoy the scenery such as horse training, train riding and feeding the horses. The park is currently preparing for the Festival of Lights, an annual Chrismas season event that draws thousands to tour the park and see fantastic Christmas decorations.
The day had to end sometime, so we said farewell to one of the good places to enjoy and be alive.
