Isn’t it fun to trip across a park in an unexpected place? Both Corsicana, TX and Ironwood, MI offer this opportunity.

We discovered two Pocket Parks in Historic downtown Corsicana. Space between two buildings was repurposed into 2 different parks that we had the privilege of seeing decorated for Christmas as well as Halloween. Each space offers a restroom.
