Washington Park gets its name from the sprawling park at its centre. That is the highlight of living here for me, every morning a take an explorative walk through the park and it never feels redundant.

The weather is pretty predictable and mild with a few outstanding occasions throughout the year. An all year jacket is necessary.
The scenery is varied and the parks are pretty clean and full of deer and fish
