It was a picturesque year for Parks and Recreation on San Diego County's Instagram channel. Our #2016bestnine Parks images - or the nine most popular/liked pictures - included scenes from Goodan Ranch-Sycamore Canyon, Heise, Los Penasquitos Canyon, Potrero, San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, Volcan Mountain and Waterfront Park. Take a look!
Top videos included a virtual bike ride at Los Penasquitos (hold on to your helmet), a four-legged friend enjoying a day on the trails at Oakoasis, and a rare Pikachu sighting at Syacamore Canyon.
Photo and video credit goes to several Parks staff members and @davana16, @renzview, @stemtations_san_diego, @angiembruno, @scottmurphyphoto, @shutternspokes and @mikefogz.
