Powderworks Park in DuPont was named for the nearby former site of the DuPont explosives factory called The Powderworks by people who worked there before it closed in the 1970s. The park is 24 acres of native Garry oak woodlands, restored prairie, trails, sports fields, and playgrounds. The park is next to two seasonal lakes that are full during the rainy months. The park is beautiful in all seasons. Many of the 500 trees in the park are more than 100 years old. A few are 250 years old. I began photographing the woodlands in 2005 before park construction began.
