My Suburban Adventure
Also, the city of Detroit doesn't have a very good reputation around the United States. People from other places think it's a scary and violent place where you can get murdered by just entering the city. That's not nearly as true as many people think. But it can happen here, or in any other large city anywhere in the world. That's just a fact of life when so many people are crowded together. I can think of a few other cities I would be more worried about.
My stories and pictures are proof that there is also the beauty of nature here around Detroit. And there will be more every day. There are already plans set for more places to be nature parks here. The future of nature is doing very well here in my little part of the world. I'm glad I live in this place.
The back fence of the park goes right to their backyards. While I was at the back of this park I heard the sounds of a loud speaker. I soon found out that it was the police. There was a problem at one of the houses. The police were trying to get someone to come out. I heard this several times. I knew there was danger so I hurried out of that area of the park.
I don't know if the problem was resolved, or how big or small the problem was. Most likely it was a domestic disturbance of some kind. Hopefully there was no violence. But this is something that happens anywhere, especially where there are so many people. It didn't faze me, and I knew what to do, get out of there, but it was unusual.
I guess this is why I love nature so much. It is not there when I look out my window, but I can find it very close to me. Maybe you can too. It doesn't matter what size of city you live in. I live in one of the biggest cities in the world and I find nature on a routine everyday basis. So get out there and find your little slice of paradise.
