An Afternoon In Elysium

   Thu, February 7, 2008 - 10:09 PM
So I stumbled upon a hidden spot at Presidio Park last weekend that I could not believe; a little gazebo tucked into the forested trails halfway between the Serra Museum and the Taylor Street entrance to the park. As I wandered around the gazebo I started to think how amazing this place was, and what a literal paradise San Diego can be when you get out and explore it a little.

This little sliver of paradise made me realize that Elysium, at least for me, is the people and the places that make life interesting. So I want to share this place with anyone interested in stopping by.

This Saturday we will be gathering from about 11:00AM to 4PM for some social re-connection at Presidio Park. The gazebo is about half way up, or down (depending on where you park), the trail between the Serra Museum and the Taylor Street parking lot. We will be bringing a small grill and some tunes so please feel free to come on by and soak up the magic that is our community and the amazing place we live.

Finding this place is a bit of an adventure but it is well worth the effort just to walk some of these trails and explore this place. I have drawn a red X on the attached “we are here” picture to mark the spot. If you need additional info email me or check the park website for a full size map. You can park down on Tailor Street and Hike up or drive to the top and park near the Serra Museum and hike down. This is not a major hike just a short trial in a beautiful place.

Please do not bring any glass as that is apparantly a no no for the park. See you this weekend!
