If you grew up watching Mr. Rogers like I did, this may sound corny, but I often find myself saying “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.”
Dickson Azalea Park, even well past azalea bloom time, was beautiful when I visited recently. At more than 100 years old, this small but mighty place has a slightly wild feeling to it, as if mother nature has the upper hand again.
Thorton Park itself is lovely, with bungalows and Craftsman-era homes located adjacent to Downtown Orlando.
Won’t you be my neighbor – and check it out?
