Park
“"Nestled along the shores of Silver Lake, and with a focus on arts and the environment, Silverwood Park is unique in the metro area. Stop in the coffee shop, bring an instrument and share your musical talents, or simply set up your easel in the park to paint. Artists are welcome here. Trails offering spectacular views of Silver Lake, restored prairie, and mature oak forests circle the park and provide inspiration to all. The visitor center bustles with activity on a daily basis. Other park amenities include an art gallery, education facilities, event rental space, a café/coffee shop, picnic sites, fishing opportunities, canoe and kayak rentals, an outdoor performance space and more."”

“Ehtiopian coffeeshop run by Gedam and her family. Tucked into a small suburban strip mall off County Road E2 from I-35W. If you like mom and pop coffee shops, this one has excellent Ethiopian coffee and you can buy whole bags of beans too. We first started visiting over a decade ago.”
