Where in Lincoln is this?

I thought this one would be a little hard, despite being in a well-traveled area. It was indeed Henry Park in College View, a stone’s throw from the store front at Prescott and 48th near Union College. The photo was taken at about 46th and Prescott, facing west. Good going Kevin, I think you are on a roll! (On the other hand, shame on you Mr. Wilson for not being able to recognize your own backyard. I had thought you would have easily been able to recognize this one. wink)

In any case, this means that if Kevin is the first to correctly guess next week’s photo, we will get him a pogocard.

Dang man, this is a feisty one. I see several clues that suggest which direction the camera was facing plus another hint or two, but I’m going to have to strain the brain to translate that into a location in Lincoln.

It looks like it could be Trendwood Park…?

I think it’s the south end of College View Park on Prescott, or as I call it, the way back from Conroy’s.

I’ve never seen that park called “College View Park” before, although that is what Google calls it. It’s more correctly known as Henry Park.

Whatever its name, it appears you’re correct. I can’t believe I missed this one, though in fairness most of the time when I’m near the spot the photo was taken I’m gasping for air with a mile and a half left to run. I’m going to have to try the Conroy’s method of Where In Lincoln sleuthing next time.

I couldn’t remember what the official name of it was, so Google did help me there. As soon as I leave Conroy’s it’s a miracle I can keep my eyes on the road, much less on signs, as I struggle to make it home without diving into the box. Best darn doughnuts in town!

I’m not a big doughnut guy but I’m going to have check that place out one of these days. I keep on hearing good things about them.

I used to live about a block from Conroy’s. You could smell the donuts frying if the wind was blowing just right.

Ahhh, the smell of fried batter in the wind…
