Around Berwyn Heights

Since I had no internet access for the last weekend, I went out for a walk on Sunday afternoon.

This is where I started (Indian Creek Park) – there’s a post with flyers on a self-guided walking tour about the old, representative building in Berwyn Heights. At the bottom is a sign for the East Coast Greenway, a trail linking cities from Florida to Maine.


Alongside the path is the Indian Creek – the water is clear although the creek appears brown due to the riverbed.

Crossed the creek here…

… and we arrived at Lake Artemesia …

… and Lake Metro.

The sky was blue and there’s willows and lilies by the lake.

Several pavilions are built along the lake.

There are signs introducing the inhabitants. The hay field look similar to that in Mai Po (米埔).



Home for the birds.


On the other side of the creek there is a birding trail.

Every time I walk back to school I’ll cross this creek.

Then I took the self-guided tour. I tried to take photos for each of the houses introduced in the pamphlet but eventually I missed one. Most of these were built in the 1890s. Some of the designs were from a pattern book.



I like this house because of its blue color.

This octagonal house is one of my favorites among the houses.

This house is now a building of the Berwyn Heights Elementary School.

Logs are stored between two trees.

The last house in the tour.

Town center for Berwyn Heights.

Rain water is stored for garden use.

Another house in blue.

This is the main building for the elementary school. The road in front of it has a speed limit of 15mph instead of 25mph (which is the limit for other roads in Berwyn Heights). Also, there are stop signs at almost every intersection in the area so cars have to stop in front of the intersection even if there is no traffic light.
