Enjoying our local country park, Ferry Meadows

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.

Ferry Meadows Country park

 

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.

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.

    I’m sure your daughters will look back fondly on things like this. It is these simple family outings that stay with us forever. I also have feeding the duck memories and picnics in the park from very young. From what I see you are giving your children a wonderful start in life with lots of happy family time. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

    Hi Foz! Missed you so so so much!!!
    I didn’t receive any updates from your blog and when I went there it always said ‘no pages found’. Thank God you visited my blog. I have followed this link. Phew….now I can relax. I was so sad seeing so many blog friends just disappear from blogger. Thankfully, you are still blogging. ^.^

    Oh my! ‘Bee’ is so cuteeeeee!!! She was just a toddler when I last saw her. Now she is picking on ducks. So adorable! ^o^

    Going to parks is always so refreshing. The weather looks delightful, even more so since it is so terribly hot at my place. -_-”

    Hope that you are well Foz! Have a wonderful day ahead! (✿◠‿◠)

    Your two have no fear of the birds. Love the idea that they give the food for free. Such a good idea, I’m sure they get plenty of donations. Just for the pleasure of feeding the birds. I always forget to take a ball. Must leave one in the car. Lovely memories being made. #CountryKids
