Hunter's Point Widlife Park is tucked in the southwest corner of the town.
There is a clear view of Highway 7 and you might be able to see Bathurst Street.
It is adjacent to Chapman Park – a baseball diamond.
It is not a busy park. It seems like people had been driving golf balls here. This sign is posted on the walkway down to the park, from the space behind the plaza on Hunter’s Point Drive.
A din of traffic is very discernable while you are feeling isolated in the middle of this open space.
A run up this hill is a good work out for your leg muscles.
There is a very large patch of sumac with paths woven between them. It had a mystical feeling.
A rabbit may jump out at you.
There are many benches, well shaded, to sit and reflect.
Wide paths, either with asphalt or packed gravel, encircled the top of the hill. And there were other unofficail paths too.
A series of eight interpretive signs were at the edges of these paths. Some of the signs are warn but they are very legible and would be very appropriate for augmenting the amended teaching many students will have this fall.
There is a playground and two well warn tennis courts tucked amongst the trees
You can always just admire nature.
The fall colours should be stunning here.
This wouldn’t be a place you’d spend the whole day but it is a nice side trip. If you are not from the Richvale area you may want to detour over to Maryvale Ave and Westbrook on your way out to see some magnificent mansions.
