Tucked behind a lake with a fountain spraying water high into the air and a wall of lush green plants is the entrance to Tim Hooper Family Park. I was surrounded by nature as I strolled along the wooden plank path. It winds through arches of oak and palm trees. Finally, the opening leads to the beautiful St. Lucie River. Gazing out, I can see the reflection of the sun which appears to be painted on the rippling water. What a spectacular scene–ospreys, otters, and water access!
Intermission offers time to mingle with the artists, snack on cookies, or wander through the garden of flowering plants and bamboo trees. It’s a perfect playground for butterflies and bees. After intermission, guests were invited to participate with the band. A local woman sang several love songs. Some children were dancing to the rumba while an audience member played the maracas. A mix of generations gathered for this jamming event and it was a pleasure to watch so many folks come together through the joy of music & art.
Tip: Bring some extra cash for the donation basket for music student scholarships.
Enjoying nature on the riverwalk boardwalk and listening to melodic music…what a wonderful evening it was in Port St. Lucie.
