I drive down East Parkway on my way to my old time jam, and I've enjoyed gazing east and seeing the new "Tiger Lane" green space and tailgating area. The open space gives the graceful old Liberty Bowl the vista she deserves.
The scene kept drawing me, so I went over on a recent afternoon to paint. It was great to see walkers and bikers using the area for a little pre-dinner exercise. I love public spaces, and I'm glad this one is being used for more than occasional tail-gating.
