As Staples High School’s head boys soccer coach, I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time at the Wakeman Fields.
I know the turf. I know the grass. I know the ridiculous parking situation.
But — until Elaine Marino sent me a photo — I had no idea a log-lined, wood chip-filled path led from Wakeman to North Pasture. (Click here to see.)
Nor did any other readers — except Julianne Low.
She nailed it. Every other guess — Earthplace, the Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum, Winslow Park, Baron’s South, a cemetery — was wrong.
So to all my fellow coaches, plus parents, athletes, dog walkers, model plane flyers and everyone else who enjoys Wakeman: We have to look around more.
And, of course, park better.
This week’s challenge Photo Challenge is less “straightforward.” If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
