When I picture the idyllic park, I see rolling grassy knolls, kids swarming around picnics and swing sets, and dogs chasing cats. Palmer Park meets an entirely different expectation, but in a very good way. Perfect for biking or walking, with ample pull-off parking on scenic, windy roads, Palmer Park accommodates virtually all people who enjoy the outdoors. Though it's accessible from several busy roads, it's a fantastic escape from city noise. And Palmer Park's dramatic Grandview Overlook, aptly named, makes for a great lookout, and a great spot for making out.
