My family and I needed a break from the humdrum of traveling and so turned off to see what Park is like. Our two-year-old daughter Glory was ecstatic that we were going to a "Park," because that's what she called a playground; and fortunately the town had one. If you can put up with the humid summers, it appears to be an ideal, tiny town, especially if you hate to ride a bicycle uphill. But what surprised us is the tremendous church which can be seen from everywhere around, pointing its steeple to Heaven. It's the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and it's beautiful, so large that it obviously serves Catholics from a vast area around Park as well as the town. It emanates a sense of peace and security in a desolate landscape, and it fascinated us. I wouldn't mind living in Park. I wouldn't mind living there at all.
