McDonald Park is smack dab in the middle of Bungalow Heaven, and the neighborhood association takes a lot of pride in it. We're grateful for that!

That's our neighborhood park and we love it!

A couple of years ago my husband and I were talking about urban wildlife and were debating whether or not coyotes regularly roamed our neighborhood (Bungalow Heaven). I thought it likely, he did not. Later that evening, around 10:00 pm we took a walk and lo and behold there was an entire pack of coyotes hanging out in McDonald park having a fantastic time going through the trash bins. I wasn't at all scared, more excited that even in the midst of the city such wild things could flourish.
