Something for everyone on this walk. Historical Museum divided into several themed rooms that each showcase an achievement of Swedish Americans. The Golden Map room and the New Sweden gallery are especially neat. https://www.americanswedish.org/
$10 admission fee.

Then on to explore the park. There is a golf course and multiple lakes. We will take the loop road and get to FDR skate park under I95. Lots of graffiti murals and skaters to photograph.

FDR Skate Park has been described by professionals and in magazine articles such as Thrasher and Skateboarder to be a concrete, skateboard 'paradise', as it was designed and built by skateboard enthusiasts. The whole Park is also playable in the video game Tony Hawk's Proving Ground by Activision and Neversoft.

Bring your fast focus camera/lens for the action shots.

Got to last stop on Broad St Line and walk west on Pattison to the museum.
