Forest bathing – give it a try at Beechwood Park!

Per Wikipedia: Forest bathing is the practice of taking a short, leisurely visit to a forest for health benefits. The practice originated in Japan where it is called shinrin-yoku (森林浴) in Japanese (it is also called sēnlínyù (森林浴) in Mandarin and sanlimyok (산림욕) in Korean).

The article goes on to state that – studies in Japan have measured changes in immune markers and stress hormones in people who regularly walked in specific forests in Japan.  
These photos were taken on August 9th at Beechwood Park, a serene, beautiful, wooded sanctuary. The park entrance is located on Beechwood Place, off Lynn St in Harrington Park (enter at the end of the paved small road next to 50 Beechwood Place).
I am not able to upload movies to this site — please visit the HP Greenteam Facebook page to experience the sight and sounds of middday mid-August in Beechwood Park.
