A backflip dismount
Attention: Capitol Hill’s Cal Anderson Park has shed its fences, and is open for business.
Conveniently, it is located across the street from the Stranger’s offices (it’s one of our perks, along with free pens).
I just strolled through. My favorite things include a seat built into the water feature’s downhill stream, where you can sit and dangle your feet in the cool water; the low walls at each corner, evoking the edges of the park’s prior incarnation as a reservoir; the swingset, where I just witnessed a grown man swing so high, he was able to execute a backflip dismount.
