Our World – Muskogee’s Honor Heights Park


Saturday the family was a little restless and we wanted to do something outside so we loaded up into the car rode down the turnpike to Muskogee, Oklahoma, about 40 minutes away to check out their Honor Heights Park.


Honor Heights is known for the Azalea Festival, which we missed by a couple weeks but there were still some blooms. My blog friends over the years have taught me to be appreciative of all the phases of blooms.


They did have all sorts of other plants to look at it including some beautiful lily’s like these.


We found a bunch of water lily’s alongside a small stream going through the property.


Heather and I really liked this Norway Maple. I had never heard of such a tree before and it is really striking.


This guy just wanted us to go home.

Somehow, Logan agreed to be a butterfly. He’s a big guy but he’s a butterfly now.

The Park had a lot of people but it is big at 132 acres and people stayed pretty well spread out. Most everything was open but the gift shop and playgrounds were closed due to the Covid-19 crisis. It wasn’t hard to physically distance ourselves from others.

We ran into a former teacher of Logan’s and her family, so we caught up, from about 15 feet away. It’s amazing to me how teachers remember their students.

So a good time was had by all. We gave Honor Heights Park five stars out of five. We’ll be back!

I am linking with Our World Tuesday.

    Sadly, I have never been to Honor Heights Park, but I am putting on my to do list for next spring. I’m wishing I had a place in my yard for that Norway maple. It is striking indeed. At sixteen, I’m not sure I would ever be able to talk the grandson into the butterfly mural. Have a blessed week.

    Looks like a beautiful place. I’m going to plant more irises this year, they’re so pretty. I was excited to see a possible leaf on a tree yesterday. We’re just now emerging into spring.

    Logan’s a good sport! It’s good to have such beautiful places to walk and enjoy nature and your flower photos (and the tree I’ve never heard of either). are lovely .
