Picture This: A Summer Day at Kirby Park

Nature Is All Around Us, Even in the Heart of the City

Sure, summer doesn’t officially start until the end of the month, but as soon as we flip the calendar to June, we’re in a summer state of mind. We welcomed the warm weather and sunny days with a walk at Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre.

Kirby Park spans 52 acres and includes wide-open spaces, walking trails and a peaceful pond. The park offers a place to escape into nature, and we spotted plenty of wildlife along the way.

Take a break from the computer screen and go for a walk at a community park near you. Just remember to follow all safety guidelines and practice social distancing.
