Spring Run Trail ....Part 2

One of the first interesting items that you run across is this fencing  on the right of the path--anybody know what the City is protecting you from ???? From falling into the emerging Spring Run stream!
Here it is from the other side of the fence. Think back to  Congress Park, standing by the carousel, that is the last spot that you would see this stream above ground.  Some say the headwaters (or where it starts) is under CVS in Congress Plaza where it naturally runs underground to the park--pops up near the bandstand.....It then runs via culvert by the carousel- down Putnam Street to High Rock and is free flowing from this spot through Ten Springs - around the closed landfill to finally empties into Lake Lonely.

Later, we will add a 1800's map showing how stream ran through the area.
