Community photo of the week: Lions Pool

on March 27, 2013

Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Sean Reinhart.

He writes, “Steam rises from the Lions Pool in the early morning hours, with newly planted vegetable beds in the foreground. The new cages on top of the planter beds were installed by a local retired librarian; local kids planted the vegetables. Photo taken at Dimond Park (Glenview/Dimond/Oakmore).”

If you’d like to contribute to “community photo of the week,” just send a favorite photograph taken in Oakland to with the subject: PHOTO. Please make all photographs large-sized and in jpeg format. Oakland North cannot pay for community photos, except in gratitude and local love.

    For a minute I thought this said POOL of the week. That might be fun!
