Scott Underwood: County 4-H fair gives glimpse of Beulah Park's treasures

(Continued)

In summertime, splashing and youthful laughter draw the eye to the swimming pool, which a few years ago was in danger of closing before a group of local women rallied emotional and financial support to keep it open. Now, kids slither down a 109-foot water slide, while younger tykes splash about in the wading pool.

While you’re out at the fair July 21 to 27, you might cast an eye on Beulah Park and make a mental note to come back after the fair has ended and the park’s various charms can be enjoyed in a more tranquil time.

Editor Scott Underwood’s Monday column will be devoted through the summer to Green Spaces of Madison County. Contact him at scott.underwood@heraldbulletin.com or 640-4845 to suggest topics for the series.
