Paramount Park Natural Area has a myriad of moods. Today it was a veritable "Winter Wonderland" both for quiet contemplation and fun!

Paramount Park offers natural wonders to photograph every day, but today it was mostly a Black & White album. Black and White is actually the most artistic medium anyway, in this photographers opinion.

Paramount Park's wetland restoration has grown into a true nature preserve. Reflections are the extra bonus of a morning walk.

There is no end to the variety of views in this jewel of the Shoreline Parks Department. Over the last two decades, Paramount Park Neighborhood Group has worked with countless volunteers to restore some of the integrity of this largest wetland in Shoreline. 

Paramount Park was designated a Backyard Wildlife
Habitat in conjunction with the
Shoreline Community Backyard Wildlife Habitat Project.
