I've been off out to another fairly local, yet new-to-me, place for a baby and buggy ramble - Rushcliffe Country Park, just south of Nottingham.
|Ladybird on the Ladybird trail|
It has all the usual things you'd expect at a country park - a lake with waterfowl, easy paths, a playpark with swings and stuff to climb, skate boarding, a running route for those who like to dash past the scenery - but also some pleasant 'extras' like a dog activity trail (I wish we'd had Dylan the dog along), interesting bits of art here and there, a heritage train ride almost on-site, and a sensory play area with hands-on puzzle solving and music making (I loved that bit!)
I think it's somewhere we'll be back to visit again, particularly as our grandson gets older.
