Capture the Beauty of a Rainy Day Park Visit
The Parks take on a different ambience when it rains. They become quieter, calmer. The raindrops add sparkle as they reflect the lights. And after dark on a rainy day, the illuminations in the Parks reflect off the ground enhancing the twinkle and sparkle of scenery.
The Parks offer great photo opportunities on rainy days. Try taking a photo of a scene reflected in the wet pavement or the twinkling of the lights decorating the Park.
