Around the Village

One afternoon in between raindrops I decided to take a stroll around the village and snap some shots.

Sam Katz was the original developer of Cherryhill Village and is still revered by the long-time residents.  A stone commemorating him is positioned near a little gazebo an shuffleboard area behind my building and  adjacent to the outdoor pool.

Front view of outdoor pool entrance.

 

The outdoor pool, sans water.  The owners couldn’t secure a lifeguard and for now the pool is closed.  I am sad.

Walkway along the garden plots.

 

Sam Katz allowed use of his land, free of charge, for residents to grow gardens.  There are 140 plots in total.

Along the garden plots.  There is no shortage of green space to enjoy nature.
