An overview map of Heritage Hills and Mesta Park shows the relative location of where today's Saturday morning pics were taken:
More particularly, here's where I took my Saturday morning drive:
Except as otherwise stated, my drive began at NW 13th and proceeded north and then south along Classen Drive which circumvents the very nice Alice Harn Park.

The Mid-Continent Life Insurance Building, now the Oklahoma Heritage Center (for more about that project, see this earlier blog post) provides the southern gateway into the neighborhood:
The southern end of Alice Harn Park quickly becomes visible. Alice Harn, wife of William Harn, owned this area in her own name. In 1910, she gifted the center part of Classen Drive to the city as a park. You'll see a plaque to that effect below. So, here are a few views of the park:
The next pics are from the east side of Classen Drive, driving north.
