Nature’s own water in Riley Park

Water for Riley couldn’t resist posting pictures of the swamp that is Riley Park in Calgary’s lovely springtime. This is not the water source that Water for Riley had in mind for drinking.

Ah, spring thaw in Riley Park, March 25, 2017, get your raft and hip waders.

However, it’s great for kids in gumboots taking a very long time getting to Hillhurst School through the puddles, and for ducks, who were seen swimming on the cricket pitch. It’s also adding a layer of silt to the undersides of dogs.

Short legs + spring thaw = one muddy dog.

Families are just so happy to see spring, they’re happily sloshing through the muck to the playground.

Sun’s out and so are the Riley Park fans.
