One thought on “Executive Director”
Thank you,Constance, for leading a tour in O ‘Fallon Park 9/25. I look forward to sharing this when more walking trails are available. I used my car to explore further.
FYI: the 16 Taylor Metrobus does enter the park but does not go all the way to the Rec Center. There is an straight walkway from the bus stop – much easier than the winding driveway. So I don’t need my car next time.
Best Wishes, Melanie Harvey
