Crying Indian Visits Philly

Philadelphia’s park system is awesome…

Sadly, I experienced that not every park, however, fits the mold of what the Fairmount Park system is supposed to look like.

Tacony Creek Park borders a few neighborhoods, some pretty nice, some not so nice. Sadly, the other day when I decided to stop for a run, the park mirrored the worst of those neighborhoods.

The trails were unkept and there was trash everywhere. Cigarettes, 40s, and liquor bottles were mixed in with trash of all shapes and sizes. The appearance of the park somehow convinced my mind that I was unsafe (perhaps I was and perhaps it was just an illusion) and after less than 10 minutes, I turned around and went back to the car.

Sad, really…
