Here's some history for you about this park, that isn't in the history books... My husband and I call this "marry me park." When he first asked me to marry him, and I said yes, we didn't have a ring. So months later, we got a ring and he decided to make it more official...on one knee and everything. Hence the secret name of this park. I thought about, as a joke saying "no" -- but then we'd probably have a different name for the park. Like..."you're a jerk park," or something like that. So, it's still "marry me park" with some great memories.

What a great story, Kat.

Ben, your photos of these signs make me look at them more closely than I ever have. This is a great project.

I drive by this park sign most days, and am always enthralled by it. I wonder if the children from nearby Sequoyah school painted the tiles?

great question - I really like the night and day theme.
