Somewhere on campus? That is such a fine trailer, maybe a motor pool depot area around Radio Rd?

I'm thinking city/state park off the bench.

That looks like a GRU concrete pole, and I'm trying to recall where I've seen those ridiculous cinder-cone manholes... has to be campus to me. Or some out-of-the-way city park? Or it's the back of some random apt complex....

The info I got from her during lunch was that it's not on UF campus and it's where she goes to get bugs for class.

Ignore the parking lot, I just can't ride my bike in grass very well.
I go here to insect collect, as well as, to remember a great contributor to preservation of some gorgeous Gainesville areas. It's a gem in the middle of a concrete jungle, and you may have to sweat some blood and tears to find the entrance. This spot is an unofficial back exit/entrance that I use because its easier to park, but I'll give it to you if you tag the entrance instead.

Heh. If only it was that easy to get an insect collection.

Tomorrow will make it only one week with the new bike, so expect me to be enthusiastic.
Took a 33 mile tour of Gainesville looking for this mystery spot:
Thought for sure it was the Elks Lodge entrance of Alfred A Ring Park:

Then I tried the Loblolly Park:

The dumpster behind the Creekside Mall:

The Veterans' Memorial off Tower:

Then some place I'd never heard of off Waldo:

Then I just trolled up and down the duck pond area. I think the recent mowing and the ramshackle trailer point to a private landscaping company, so maybe not a city park? Look how abused that curb is, too.. that's old Gainesville. I think it's the West side.

Yeah, I was thinking similar places. See what clues the morrow brings. Might do some dirt exploring around Gville in the am, see if anything pops.

The person who is honored by this area gave his time to preserve many of the natural parks in Gainesville. Remember, its surrounded by a concrete jungle, so if you haven't seen some buildings in a while, you aren't in the right place. Maybe you should make a donation, that might help you find the entrance a little better.

John Mahon park, right behind the Lifesouth blood bank. Funny thing is, I have a file tag from there, just not the hidden entrance. And I thought the tag was in this area cause Paula likes the coffee shop across the street, and explored the area, just the wrong side.
