Sunday Autumnal Stroll in Tring Park

Sunday, 5 October 2014

We wanted to take advantage of the sunshine this morning and decided to head to Tring Park. I'm so glad we did as it was ideal for a Sunday stroll.

We parked in the new car park that has been created near the Tring Museum (parking is free). It was then a short walk over a footbridge to the Park. There are maps showing a few different walks. We chose to do the Woodland Walk as this took in some of the key features of the Park including the Obelisk and the Summer House Folly.

To start with we carried Little Miss A in the backpack carrier but then let her down to walk a bit. It was great fun seeing her run around in the fallen leaves!

From the Summer House, the walk goes along King Charles Ride where there were several viewpoints with really lovely views.

We also came across an interesting archway! There were animal heads carved into some of the wood and the lyrics to a song. After a bit of research, I think it's the lyrics to 'Pure Imagination' from the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory film with Gene Wilder. A very unusual sculpture!

Little Miss A ended up walking the last part as Daddy got a little bit carried away with jigging her in the carrier and a strap broke. Whoops!

We were out for about an hour and a half which was just right for this morning. We'll definitely be heading here again.
