Walnut Woods State Park

Grand Ave. west to I-35, south on I-35 to S.W. 64th Ave., east on S.W. 64th Ave. to S.W. 105th St., north on 105th St. to park

Within the 300-acre park are several examples of rustic architecture in wood and stone. The largest of these structures, a park shelter, looks nearly like a period revival (medieval) single-family dwelling of the late 1920s or early 1930s. Its front, looking out onto the parking area, gives the appearance of a completely enclosed house, but the shuttered windows to each side of the masonry chimney are simply openings for the partially enclosed shelter that lies behind.
