The lines and the curvature of this tree is an example of how beauty lies in the imperfect. This tree never runs out of shapes. When it is covered in the summer, it is a perfect hideaway spot. Also, you can pay respects to the animals that once resided on these grounds.

The column divides the view of the mansion. Columns are great symbols of hard work. Harkness park is the true sign of hard work and the luxury to follow afterwards.
