Boo Memorial Garden 7-22-18

After hiking the Nature Trail at Giant City State Park (Link to that Post), we stopped by Boo Memorial Garden (Atlas Obscura Info) near Carbondale IL.

Wow! We were completely blown away at how nicely maintained and well made this park was! Everything was sanded smooth (no splinters to when you bonk you head on something) and there was oodles of things for the kids to find as they ran through the castle. Absolutely worth the stop if you are pass through the area, especially if you have kids under the age of 20.

The grounds around the castle were covered with other themed D&D things. The kids didn’t quite know what to think of this full sized dragon when they first saw it:

After lunch at Cindy B’s Café in Murphysboro (worth the stop as well) we pointed the van north and returned back to our little home.
