So after a pretty miserable half term week, with lots of rain, the sun suddenly decided to show it’s face on the final day of half term. And obviously we had to make the most of it so took the girls to our local country park, Ferry Meadows which I have mentioned before when we had a winter adventure. The girls were glad to get out and about and we took a ball for them to kick around and let off some steam.
As described on their website:
Imagine somewhere beautiful, safe and unspoilt where you can walk, cycle, play, horse-ride, ride a train, go fishing, exercise the dog, jog, push the buggy and explore endless meadows, lakes and woodland
The park is a lovely place to wander around, ride your bike, have a picnic and relax….although it can get very busy in the summer. There are boat rides and a little train that goes from one end of the park to the other. You can pretty much spend the whole day there as there are play areas for the children too, although we only went for a short while in the afternoon.
The girls favourite part is always feeding the ducks, swans and geese. The park give free food, although a donation is welcome, in an attempt to stop people giving bread as it is not good for them. Bee loves being in the middle of them and actually tries to grab them!!
I remember going to the park as a young child and have some fond memories of having fun with the family. There is a lot more to do there now, and I hope that the girls will also have fond memories of the place as they get older.
