What can I say about Dupree Park? There is not history ingrained in this public, relaxed neighborhood park. It has been created from what I have observed though my eyes and a website for the convenience of the people of the neighborhood and the people outside of this location. Dupree Park has been adding and subtracting accessories in the park to give the people what they want. With an already existing walk trail, playground, bike trail, basketball area, and tennis area, there are newer additions where there used to be a softball field now just being a large amount of space left where on the side they  a disc course golf thing is being created, also, in a small parch of the large space is a newly constructed outdoor gym equipment. Who knows what other addition they will insert in the park.  Besides it being a convenient park for the people,it can also be a form of entertainment for families making it a family park, and for individuals where they can have a BBQs, parties, family reunions, exercise in a new way, have a social event, and even have a date.

I had the pleasure to observe, note take, and analyze Dupree Park’s exterior landscape. It was a chilly afternoon around 6 pm, I thought there would be more people, but no. As I started to walk around the park, all I could hear was pure silence. All that made a noise was one car that was leaving, and a few white, black, and mixed ducks in the rippling lake. This abandonment I saw of the park was either because the people have busy schedules, maybe they did not like to go to the park or maybe even because of the chilly weather; I did not want to keep staying there myself because I was freezing. Besides this, immediately as I was walking around in the cold I could see how this large space where there used to be a softball field, where a new outdoor equipment had been inserted, where only 90% of the large space is a bit of healthy green grass but mostly dead brown grass, where there is a murky dark green rippling lake filled with a couple of ducks,  an area where the playground filled with slides and swings and monkey bars with a white fence surrounding it making me remember those sweet childhood memories, two public bathrooms, two very basic pavilions, a large parking lot, cement, wooden fences, pine cones, and large tall trees gave me a feeling this is a very basic, simple, multi-functional, convenient, free, tranquil, relaxing park as I have said before. On a few different points, I could not smell anything in the air, it was like nothingness; The only thing I could feel was the chill, dry air of the atmosphere and the only thing I could taste was my spearmint gum in that moment. That was my journey in Dupree Park.
