Sledding hill

Sledding Hill

The sledding hill at Memorial Park is a classic place to be when school is cancelled due to too much snow accumulation. Also, the area is more open because the leaves have fallen off of all the trees in the

Winter.

During fall the leaves start to change color with the help of photosynthesis. During the warm, sunny months, photosynthesis absorbs sunlight to produce sugars to feed the tree. At the same time, it is storing it in the roots for winter. So, during fall the leaves change color and die because they cannot sustain life in the harsh winter months.

Pond

At Memorial Park there are two simple natural resources for guests to enjoy. Although you cannot fish in them, the ponds are used for an attraction and a water source for the animals around the park. The living and non-living factor relating to the population of fish and the ponds are great because the pond houses the fish and is a key resource to other animals around the park.

Key to the pond is the water cycle- it circulates water between the ocean, land, and the atmosphere. Included in this is

precipitation as rain and snow falling to the

earth, then draining into streams and

rivers. The water is then sent back into the

atmosphere using evaporation and

transpiration.

Woods

Woods

The woods at Memorial Park are full of various natural resources such as dirt and many trees. In the woods there are dirt trails and wooden bridges giving you a wonderful view of the ponds.

Inside the woods there are many different types of trees, along with that adds numerous colors to the park during the fall months. This is because of photosynthesis. It is constantly changing the colors of the trees from season to season. In the summer, maple tree leaves are green, but in the fall they turn a tint of orange/yellow/red. While a pine tree is an evergreen; it is green during all seasons.

Tennis courts

Tennis Courts

Here at Memorial Park there are four tennis courts for everyone to enjoy during the summer. The courts are beside the Sunken Garden as well as the creek to add a beautiful view while volleying back and forth.

To increase the beauty of the view, there are many trees and rocks with animals using both as a shelter and/or a food source located behind the courts. This is an example of how living and non-living things interact with one another. Small animals

hide or live in the rocks,

showing how living and

non-living organisms are in

a constant flux.

Creek

Creek

Extending most of the length of Memorial Park, the creek adds a peaceful elegance to the view. There are trails for you to walk near it, as well as bridges to cross it. Small fish and crawfish call this creek home.

A common threat to organisms in the creek are humans. They are constantly leaving trash all over the park which then goes into the creek and releasing harmful chemicals killing organisms. But, on the other hand, volunteers are also cleaning up the park for community service.
