13. Exploring Oakley

After our time at the Museum, we travelled around Oakley to see what we could find.  Perhaps the most famous attraction in Oakley is the sculpture of "Buffalo Bill" Cody and the Buffalo.  The cabin which houses the information center and gift shop was closed.  We also explored the Memorial Garden (honoring service men and women), Survivor of the Plains sculpture, and Dough Boy Statue.

We discovered a fun park in Oakley,  Annie Oakley park.  It not only has playground equipment, it also has gazebos, walking trails, and a swimming pool.  It may be January, but it was still warm enough for the kids to enjoy the playground.  They got to go down the slides, ride the merry-go-round, run some of their energy off, and climb all over everything.  Their favorite part was the fake fossil in the playground under the fake rock wall.  Happy hunting.
