Thursday Challenge-“Outdoors” (parks,trails,rivers,playgrounds..)

Living in the suburbs can prove quite boring sometimes. However, some of the newer suburbs now designed to be more welcoming for families and residents with attractive outdoors recreational park areas, incorporated in the estates. Doreen, an outer suburb of Melbourne city, Australia is one such suburb.

An artificial pond with walking trails, bridges and playgrounds make an attractive and relaxing outdoors  area for suburban  residents to enjoy a picnic in the park,  a morning or evening stroll at Doreen.
