The Old Forest in Overton Park is 172-acre natural woodland in the center of the city. I'll post photos of the trails in the area in a dedicated post, but here's a taste:
There are several access points into the trails, and when motorized access was prohibited barriers were set up to keep out the cars:
The Overton Park Conservancy is in the process of replacing these functional posts with pieces of art that will still serve to block motor traffic. The piece pictured at the top is the latest of these. It is named Murmuration and is by Yvonne Bobo. I like public art, and I think this is a welcoming sight as people approach the Old Forest.
