Our Park

The Easter holidays are coming to an end so we've been making the most of going out and the little bit of sunshine that we've had.

Saturday afternoon was spent in our beautiful local park. I'm always going on about how lucky we are to live so close to such a wonderful park. It has everything from wide open spaces, children's play areas, streams and ponds for ducks and sailing, a pavilion with a cafe, a water play area for the summer, stunning scenery and an animal centre.

We didn't take the dogs with us on Saturday so we could go and say hello to the animals. The majestic peacocks wandering freely.



We saw the small ponies being fed with bags of chopped carrots.







 Wallabies, 2 albino ones enjoying the warmth from the sun,




and 2 more, 1 with a joey popping in and out of it's cosy pouch.



Noisy goats, 3 adults and 2 kids.




 Emus watching us with beady eyes.



 Lots of beautiful, colourful birds.










Imogen went climbing trees,




and rocks in the Khyber Pass






Then a trip for Imogen in the play area. It has everything and new things are always being added. I think the latest additions are a couple of trampolines built into the ground, there's also a zip line, lots of different slides for different ages, swings, roundabouts, climbing areas and much more.


We are so lucky to live within walking distance of such a lovely park, and I'm looking forward to spending more time there as the weather improves.

Take care

  9. What a great park. We visited a Wildlife Park during the Easter hols and saw three peacocks fully displaying their wonderful plumage - vying for the attention of the female peacocks who seemed disinterested in their fabulous display!
