Forget Me Not Pond

Forget Me Not Pond is a cute little picnic area slash boating area slash hiking area just down the highway from us.  I think it’s past highway 22 onto highway 66 but i don’t really know highway numbers.  I am sure Google could help you out.  It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.  So peaceful, so serene.  All of the benches have dedications to lost loved ones.  It’s so sweet and sad at the same time. I was especially saddened to see one couple who died 19 days apart – so similar to my own grandparents who themselves only 17 days without one another.
The parking is great and their are TONS of picnic spots if you are willing to walk around the pond otherwise the ones close to the parking tend to fill up fast and early – especially on gorgeous weekends like this one was.
The water was crisp clean and waiting for people to enjoy it.  We made a mental note to bring the canoe next time we visited because what a beautiful ride it would be.
The hike is pretty much all flat and not too long so it’s great for people of all hiking abilities.
It’s a  hop skip and a drive away from our house, a perfect trek for a day outside the city
