What is a place that shaped you, and how does it give you purpose?

A place that has shaped me is French Park in Cincinnati. I’ve been going there since I was a child. The area helps me align with my purpose because I can wander the trails and woods in any kind of mood and come back feeling refreshed, relaxed and focused.
