Coleman Park

As the father of four children, I have spent many hours in various East York parks that have playground equipment. During this year’s March break, I am going to revisit one each day and make a post of some of the nature that I find there.

Coleman is a small park containing tennis courts and playground equipment.

Here are some of the planted trees:

Kentucky Coffee Tree;


the triangular buds of Hackberry;


Norway Maple;

Norway Maple keys;


the red buds of Linden;

the seeds of Linden

Amur Maple keys;

Sugar Maple with much lichen;

Red Ash;

The green labels indicate that the tree has been sprayed to prevent Emerald Ash Borer.

White Spruce;

White Spruce cones;

White Cedar cones;

Here are some of the species occurring naturally next to the fence:

Manitoba Maple;

Manitoba Maple;

Wych Elm with its blueish bark;

a row of Manitoba Maple;

Norway Maple with its reddish buds;

the tendrils of Riverbank Grape vines.
