Potter Park

I’ve been slacking. Life and the great weather this past weekend has gotten in the way of something I love. I’ll do better next weekend, promise.

Potter Park is one of the few public parks within the village of Fairport. You might pass it every day and not even realize it. One of the main features of the park is the Potter Memorial that faces West Church St (route 31f). 5 pillars, artillery guns and a memorial plaque saluting the American Flag. It’s really quite beautiful especially at night.

The park is more than a memorial though. There are baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, a playground, a large green grass field that can be used for whatever you want and it’s even home to a Lions Club facility as well as a Historical House.

It’s not a Hiker’s paradise and you won’t find anyone mountain biking or rock climbing but it’s just about the best type of park you could ever hope for in a village containing an endless supply of kids that need to burn off energy. If you’ve got kids and or you’re looking for a place to play some sports with some friends, Potter Park might be just about perfect for you.

Below is something new I’m trying. It’s a PhotoSynth of the Potter Memorial. A PhotoSynth is like a 3D world built using multiple photos in much the same way a panorama is made. I’m not 100% satisfied with the result since there seems to be a bunch of disconnected photo ‘groups’ but not as bad as I thought it would.

If you can’t see the PhotoSynth above, please visit the original post.
