Fassnidge Park

Sunny afternoons in the winter time are definitely not to be wasted and so last Sunday saw us heading out for a walk around Fassnidge Park, a pretty little Edwardian park in the centre of Uxbridge.

I’ve driven past it quite a few times and hubby grew up within walking distance of the park, but this was the first time I’d visited it. Country Kids has been good for encouraging me to discover new outdoor spaces to explore!

As is often the case with our afternoon walks, Sophie spent all of it fast asleep in the buggy but Jessica enjoyed being able to run about and explore. She is quite fascinated by leaves at the moment and was very happy to find this rather enormous leaf to add to her collection.

Naturally, the playground was particularly inviting and Jessica managed to make her way across the net bridge with Daddy’s help. It’s the first time she’s done this and so she was very pleased with herself and needless to say wanted to do it a few more times!

Going down the slide is always lots of fun!

We also spotted some ducks and swans on the River Frays and Jessica was a little disappointed that we didn’t have a bag of food for them. I’ll have to remember to bring one next time!

  1. That photo at the end is really beautiful. What a lovely park to have in the middle of a town. I must say that leaf looks as big as Jessica! If she is into leaves why not collect a few next time you visit and make a collage or do some leaf rubbings? That’s a bag for leaves and bread for the ducks next time! Delighted that Country Kids is inspiring you to explore the area with the girls, it is always a pleasure to see what you have been up to, thank you for joining in.

  2. That is one mega leaf – it looks like a giant Maple leaf in her hand! Always lovely to find a beautiful park to explore outdoors.

  3. I know what you mean about taking advantage of the weather considering its been so bad of late! Jessica looks so happy and what a huge mega-leaf she’s found!
    Lovely photos and glad you had a lovely time outdoors

  4. It looks like you had a great day, and nice that you spotted swans and ducks! #letkidsbekids

  5. Ah, I’ve been there before – but not for years! Since we had kids I’ve really come to appreciate these big open spaces – perfect for the kids to have some fun and burn off steam. 🙂

  6. Looks like a lovely time in the great outdoors. That leaf is a great find, she looks very proud of it!
