Located almost in my back yard is a gem of a park known as Pioneer Arboretum. The arboretum is located at the northern end of the Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail that I wrote about earlier. The arboretum contains a gazebo, a few birdhouses, many flowering bushes and several tree species each identified by name. I have lived in Warren since June 1998. I have passed by the arboretum many, many times. Never once had I stopped to wander in its midst. This past Monday evening my husband, Bob, and I went for a walk in the arboretum.

I had to laugh out loud when I saw this well. My friend, Tara, asked me a while ago if I knew of a nearby water well that she could photograph for a CD album cover. My response was no. Well, look here … a water well right in my back yard! Tara has since released her CD, “Have Some Love & Hope & Let it Show”. A water well does not adorn the CD cover. Tara, if a water well will fit in the theme of your next CD, I know where to find one now!
What a cool-looking birdhouse!
The Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike trail passes alongside the Pioneer Arboretum. This train stands as a reminder that the trail was once a rail corridor.
