Brookside Park in Bloomfield is a little oasis in the middle of a busy town. I love to come here and watch the ducks. They love to argue with each other. The Canadian geese are their usual snooty selves. They love to march across the road, not caring about the traffic at all.
It is NOT a good idea to feed the wildlife, however, since apparently there is a possible $1000 fine if you do.
I love the sign at the entrance: "Enjoy your stay . . . please leave nothing behind but your footprints."
