Wollaton Park

We are lucky to live in Nottingham. There are plenty of green spaces within a short distance, and a three year-old with lots of energy needs somewhere to run around.

There is a park directly opposite our street, which is great for a quick visit but it’s not very big and lacks trees. Luckily Wollaton Park is only a short drive away. There are plenty of trees there, a cafĂ©, a lake, deer, ducks, swans and geese and miles of paths for Ruby to race along on her balance bike or scooter.

We had a lovely afternoon there on Saturday. Now that Ruby is getting bigger we really should visit there more frequently.
