Beacon Bits: skiing in the park, hiking to the store, and eating Cajun food

Evolution of a new, improved Jefferson Park

Willie Weir writes to the beaconhill list:

Hey neighbors,

I have periodically taken photos of the work on the reservoir in Jefferson Park. I’ve lived here long enough to remember the space surrounded by barbed wire. I know there are people on this list who still haven’t seen the view from this vantage point. On a clear day this winter, walk past the community and up toward the lawn bowling club. You won’t be disappointed!

Willie recommends that you choose the high-definition and full-screen options to view it in its full detail:


There are also a couple of photos of the area from a year or so ago in the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr.

Thanks for the awesome photos and video, Willie!
