The Thing Lou Couldn't Do

by Ashley Spires

Lou and her friends are BRAVE adventurers. They run FASTER than airplanes. They build MIGHTY fortresses. They rescue WILD animals.” But one day, when they're looking for a ship to play pirates in, Lou's friend has an idea: “Up there! The tree can be our ship!” “Ummm ...” says Lou. This is something new. Lou has never climbed a tree before, and she's sure she can't do it. So she tries to convince her friends to play a not-up-a-tree game. When that doesn't work, she comes up with reasons for not joining them --- her arm is sore, her cat needs a walk, you shouldn't climb so soon after eating. Finally, she tells herself she doesn't want to climb the tree. But is that true, or is this brave adventurer just too afraid to try?


To read the Story Walk from the beginning, enter the park from the South Entrance near the Water Park. Then take the right path.

Afterwards, you should find the first page along the right-hand side of the sidewalk.

Follow the path until the first fork which begins at the playground. Stay left in order to read the rest of the story.

Then, continue to stay left as you approach the municipal building and parking lot.

At this point, following the path back to the parking lot will allow you to complete the story! Stay left when the path forks towards the water park! :)
