Day 35

Glover Park (August 24, 2019)

Back in Glover Park we walked by what looked to be the biggest community garden yet. The 2.7 acre garden started as a Victory Garden during World War II to address food shortages.

Across from the garden are the Park Crest Gardens apartment complex. We loved the deco style of the buildings, which were built in 1941 and designed by G.T. Santmyers.

Glover Park consists primarily of row houses and apartment buildings. In fact, the two houses in the following photos may be the only single family homes we encountered during the evening’s walk.
