So, according to my map, the next stop on my summer odyssey to visit the
34 parkettes of Richmond Hill will take me to Worthington Parkette.
|street parking only, Worthington Parkette behind me|
The parkettes all seem to be spaces for the immediate neighbourhood. Spaces to walk to.
There is no parking except street parking at this one.

|going around behind -- pretty standard fare.|
This parkette seemed big to me. A full size play set in a sandpit. Some trees, some landscaped rolling lawns, two benches. A screen of thick trees in behind the parkette
and even a well worn footpath to somewhere in through the trees
Frankly I found it kind of boring, and on my return to the car I noticed this across the street
This was a lot like the entry to my first parkette, so maybe this was the parkette? I hadn't actually seen any sign on the other one and there was no sign except what looks to be the standard Park Rules sign I have now found a few times. I decided to explore it a bit.
A nice gentle climb on a paved path lined with big formal rectangular blocks of stone
|Johnny This WAY graffiti! ooooo!|
Graffiti around the corner
Stone blocks gone and it's a paved path leading into trees and I can't see how far that is and I need to get going. So I turn around and have made a mental note to check into this again.
And as I drive away, realize I am heading in the wrong direction for parkette #3, I double back and there it is, the town park sign:
Worthington Park. It's not parkette? Or is it? Is the sign right and the trail map wrong? Or is the map right and the sign wrong? This parkette business isn't very straightforward. But it's turning out to be more curious than I expected. #3 coming soon.
