A Joewalk in Ping Tom Memorial Park

Yesterday was too nice to waste indoors. Some folks at Yo HQ spent the afternoon at the Friendly Confines; I spent mine down at Ping Tom Memorial Park, located at 300 W 19th St in Chinatown.

I had never been to Ping Tom until yesterday, so all of my knowledge about it going in came from a quick read through its Wikipedia entry and Chicago Park District page. Even with the occasional clanging of passing trains and the zoom of traffic across the 18th Street overpass, I found the park to be almost as tranquil as its Chinese garden design would suggest.
