Trammell Crow Park, Dallas

Last week I had been to the south side of Dallas downtown and guess what it looks like a ghost town. Characterised by narrow, pot-holed streets, dirty neighborhoods the city looks more like small town India. But one striking difference is the lack of people. While India is bustling with people in all kinds of places, here it is difficult to see anybody. But for the ubiquitous presence of cars whizzing past on the roads one would think there is nobody in the neighborhood. As we were driving noticing this vast open space with a lake and some sculptures, we stopped to take a closer look.

Cattle and cowboys are inseparable part of Texas. If not the real ones then the sculptures made of stone, metal or even concrete will do.

Another cow, this is tired and sitting in the shade of a large tree which has shed leaves during fall and is slowly turning green as spring appoaches.

The road cuts right across the park, but in a bid to cause minimum disturbance to people enjoying the park the road is built like a flyover across the park. That is a nice thought and should be emulated elsewhere in the world.

The solitary tree near the Trammel Crow Lake which is just sprouting green buds presents a great sight.
