My Favorite Park: Far North Bicentennial Park

“My favorite park would have to be Far North Bicentennial because I live right by it. I really enjoy it because it is mostly undeveloped and there are a lot of natural trails. I’ve seen bears, moose, and a big black wolf. I had a close encounter with a lynx one time. I was biking one day and I saw something that looked like a dog on the side of the trail. I rode up next to it and stopped. I saw it was a lynx. We looked right into each others eyes for a while then I realized that it was a wild animal and it could probably attack me easily, so I quickly decided to start biking again.”
