    On the first post you had of Storytime at Seola Pond there were inquires/comments  on how to get to the pond and parking. There is only street parking and it is on SW 106th and the entrance to the pond looks like you’ll be cutting thru peoples yards but it is not, it is a County owned easement. Picture attached. This sounds so fun for the children, besides reading and finding new friends there’s so much wildlife there to see! 🦆

      Thank you so much for this information. I’ve tried to find the pond several times and I’ve never been successful. Now I know the correct location to enter! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
