Since the beginnings of humankind, man has aspired to, received satisfaction from, and attained everlasting fame by moving the biggest, largest thing he can imagine, which would be rock.
History records the trials and tribulations, sacrifices, many have made for the immortal cause.
Stonehenge (est 3000-2000 BC)
Pyramids (est 2700-1700 BC)
Hale Mill – across the street (completed 1865)
NY Central Park – more gunpowder used to (completed 1873) move boulders than the whole Battle of Gettysburg
Bassem’s New Stone Patio (circa 2012)

warm and sunny
lots of cool shade
Bring your friends, bring your family, you can even bring your pet!
It’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of in a rock, except maybe the pet rock part. (RIP Gary Dahl)
Best secret of all?
It’s free for you to enjoy any time of year (but we recommend spring to experience the best flowers)
