When I hear the word letters, I think of handwritten letters which are sealed in an envelope and mailed.
Of course letters in the alphabet are what is used to make words and words are everywhere. The first shot shows one side of the sign at the Optimist Park which has the welcome greeting and brochures about various activities at the park as well as at other city parks with community centers. The second shot is the other side of the sign box and that has the greenway trail map which also has a list of all of the city parks and trails as well as other information.
The shot below is a close-up of the map where someone wrote in hand letters where the viewer is when looking at the map. I live within walking distance of the Optimist Park which has a playground for children, a tennis courts, ball fields, a community center with a basket ball court, and a covered-heated year round swimming pool. There are also trails that start at the Optimist Park and lead to Shelley Lake.
By the way, I'm not sure if there is any significance to the owls and squirrels on these maps and signs. I have a greenway trail map and mine doesn't have squirrels or owls on it. Click here for the home of Photohunters.
