Fort at Ward Acres

[chuck] in New Rochelle, Other, Ward Acres

Took a pleasant walk yesterday afternoon through the forest at Ward Acres Park and Nature Reserve in the North End of New Rochelle. Beautiful vistas, nice wetland boardwalks, and huge tulip poplar (Lirodendron tulipifera L.) trees, but I was most taken, perhaps, by the fort. Don't know who built it (wish it was me) or when, but there are two stone seats inside, the floor is swept clean, and there is room to stand for several small people. Someone had a great time making this. [NOTE: Pleased that the city appreciates the value of such a structure in their nature reserve and has not torn it down].
