Weekday Park Fun

Well, I think it is safe to say spring is officially here and what better way to while away the hours than at the park.

We have a few local parks and they are all wonderful in their own ways, one I don't use much is Woodthorpe but it is a really great park with a tropical house and lovely walk to the playground. It even has it's own golf course.



Looking at the waterfall and fishes...


Trying to spot the bananas, nothing on this tree...


Smelling the tropical flowers...


We loved this bird of paradise flower, really beautiful...


Pretty orchids...


Stopping to look at more flowers...


There are the fish, basking in the sun...


And finally we spotted the bananas...


Playing peepo through the trees...


A really sunny day and lovely to walk around the park...


Pretty view through the trees to the grange...


Stopped off for a hot chocolate (I love hot choc no matter what the weather)...


Looking at mosaics, this one represents the old train line that used run through the park in to Nottingham.

  1. Wow this looks like an amazing and well kept park. I love the bananas on the trees, it reminds me of the Eden Project here and that train mosaic is fabulous, just what I need for the Coombe Mill railway! Thank you for joining me for Country Kids

    1. Yes, it is a very tiny version of the eden project but nice for the local children. I'll see if I can fit the mosaic in my handbag next time for you ;) It would be a great project for your children.
