2 miles in Merced Manor
Google is wrong! This is Merced Manor, not Parkside. The latter is north of Stern Grove.
I took this walk on Sunday. In the rain. The verdict is still out on whether that was a smart idea or not since the temperature was about 54 degrees and my pants were thoroughly soaked when I got home. Regardless of potential pneumonia, it was a great walk because this neighborhood has serious curb appeal.
I dare you to find more perfect lawns anywhere else in town.
DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU.
It's real grass. I touched it.
I love their use of flowers, too. Really jazzes up a crosswalk.
Oh, and we can't forget the lawn ornamentation. These are the crown jewels of the neighborhood. I see these every time I drive to the Stonestown Mall. I've probably photographed them four times now. I can't help it; they're magnificent.
Of course, the neighborhood isn't 100% perfect...thanks to this house. But I think a creepy little door rounds out any walk very nicely...even in an otherwise perfectly manicured neighborhood.
