On parade

Discovery Park south parade ground

More Discovery Park/Fort Lawton: This is part of what yesterday's house overlooks. Here we see the old parade ground, where soldiers would practice close order drill and march in review. The parks department has let the native vegetation re-grow (and worked to get rid of invasive plants like blackberries and English ivy). I wonder what all those soldiers who spent all those hours policing the grounds would think of what's happened to their old post today.
