Agena Castle re-do

Over the long MLK weekend, the weather was beautiful but I wasn't feeling good.  So we decided to do a little exploring close to home.  I've seen some construction happening at Agena Central Park and I wanted to see if there's been any improvements since our last visit.

Although Owen is big enough to tackle the stairs mostly on his own, Isaac needed a lot of help.  Definitely glad Chris was able to come with us.

Amazing to think those stones have been there since the 14th century!

After the castle ruins we continued our tour around the rest of the park.

One big change from last time: no more playground.  I wonder if something new will be built in its place.

I hope the construction continues.  This park makes a nice afternoon trip and I'd love to see improvements to make it even better.
