Don't be fooled by the name of this small town park. It's actually well maintained.

Wait, am I saying it right?

With all of the construction happening in Wappingers, right now it is easy to want to avoid the area.

If you know me you know that I'm an avid runner. This summer I have been trying to make a point to run outside more. I haven't spent a whole lot of time there but I was traveling through downtown Wappingers Falls recently and noticed the small park.

I thought that I would take a brisk run through Wappingers and end in the historic Mesier Park. I've noticed that they have even had actual races held there.

I'm not sure how to pronounce the name of the park but it sure is a nice place to hang out. The village of Wappingers will even hold their annual Community Day festivities this weekend.
