Lovely Langley Park

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

Back in October we visited Langley Park for the first time and then re-visited again today. This is now my favourite park. I just wish it was a bit nearer to us as we'd be there all the time!

The first thing that strikes you is how tranquil it is. It's probably busier at weekends but given that we were there during October half term on our first visit, it was very quiet. It's definitely a lot less busy than its neighbour, Black Park

There is a huge variety of different trees so it was a nice time to visit in October with the Autumnal colours and fallen leaves. What is helpful is that many of the trees have little signs on them with what they are so you can identify them. This would be a great place to go if your kids are learning about trees or to go to collect lots of different fallen leaves for a craft project.

On both occasions, Little Miss A really enjoyed the children's playground which has lots of wooden play equipment.

In October we only had time to have a wander through the Temple Gardens which was really nice. We came across these unusual mushrooms on our walk.

Today we had more time and followed the Timberland Tree Trail which took us through the Arboretum, Kings Woods and part of Temple Gardens. It was surprisingly wet and muddy in places but all the more fun for Little Miss A!

This was taken on a bridge in the Arboretum. Peek-a-boo!!

There are some great trees to play in and hide behind so we had lots of games of hide & seek. There are some really old trees with interesting features. We can't decide what animal this looks like!?!

This is a really nice park to visit. Just be aware that car parking charges apply. There's a cafe next to the car park for refreshments.

The time to go is apparently in the Spring when the rhododendrons are in flower so we'll definitely revisit again then, if not before.
