Near the entrance to our lake is a small park, which the residents have started to call “Two bridges park” because of the two wooden bridges over small streams which pass through it. The garden club (including my wife) plants flowers there every year. In winter one of the fir trees is in the park is festooned with lights and becomes our Christmas Tree.

The park is also right next to the dam at the end of the lake. This dam features a valve to release water when the level of the lake is lowered and a spillway where excess water can run off the lake into a stream, which carries it away. We’ve had quite a lot of rain lately and so the water level in the lake is high – so high in fact that it’s spilling over the dam to form this cascade.
