One of the things I love about moving around is discovering the city we live in. When you live somewhere, you manage to find all the treasures of the city, places that you’d never know about if you were just visiting. Denman Estate Park is one of those places.
The 21 acre park doesn’t have playgrounds, but has plenty to keep your kids occupied. There is a half mile walking path around a pond full of ducks, geese, and turtles. There is also easy parking, a labyrinth, tables, and what most people probably go to see, an alluring monument, The Korean Pavilion of Gwangju. The gift from the Metropolitan City of Gwangju and Namkwang Construction to its sister city of San Antonio in 2010, was designed to “facilitate business and cultural friendships” between the two cities. It is “a replica of the traditional Korean pavilion style of the southern provinces. The Pavilion, traditionally used as a place of reflection and reception by scholars and gentlemen, embodies the beauty and harmony created by nature and structure.”
