Comstock City Park

The city park of Comstock, NE does not look like the typical small town city park. It’s about the same size, one city block, with large shade trees, but that’s where the similarity ends. There are no picnic tables, no swimming pool, no bandstand or anything else to accommodate large gatherings.

With a population of 80, the space wasn’t being used and maintenance became a burden. The park has been subdivided into several smaller plots, each attended by a volunteer “owner”. Most are flower gardens, but a few are sculpture gardens or just plain “quiet” space with a bench or seat. Some obviously receive more attention than others.

This eclectic collection of plots has brought more tourists to the town than visiting relatives.

Thought for the Day: The town was so small the “Entering” and “Leaving” signs were on the same pole.
