Shore Acres Park - Coos Bay, Oregon

Shore Acres Park
Located in Coos Bay, Oregon (I'm a big fan of Coos Bay) is the Shore Acres Park, located on the Cape Arago Highway on the coast. It is an absolutely gorgeous setting and a must visit if you come to Oregon, especially when things are in bloom.

Besides blooming season, the best times to visit it are at Christmas when it is decorated with thousands of lights. The other best time is to visit anytime!

Originally, it was the property and estate of a lumber baron Louis Simpson.  Unfortunately, due to some bad business circumstances the estate fell into disrepair and was eventually purchased and taken over by the State of Oregon for a park site and public use.

My wife, puppy and I visited the Park on a very rainy day, I mean rain....things were not in bloom...it wasn't Christmas. So all the pics here do not even come close to depicting the beauty of this outstanding setting...not to mention an outdated point and shoot camera to take these photos.
