Grangewood park: You’d never know it was there!

2013-08-19 13.14.05

On our way into Croydon we always drive past this park, so this time we thought we would explore it, and Im so glad we did!

The best of both worlds with a dense forest area with pavement paths, perfect for buggies, fallen trees and plenty more for some nature play. There was a playpark, not fantastic but pretty good, and some cultivated garden for a bit of picturesque picnicing.

MiniMalik really enjoyed climbing fallen trees, being able to RUN and just playing in the dirt.

MrMalik and MicroMalik even shared a picnic blanket snooze whilst MiniMalik played in the dirt and MrsMalik collected some seeds from the flowers (My new hobby; seed foraging for our empty garden!).2013-08-19 12.26.57


Lloyds park: a gem in the wilderness

Hiding in the corner of a park in Croydon is a fantastic little play park more fitting with a London tourist destination, than Croydon council.


Climbing frames, zip wire, hillside slide, nature area plus all the usual playground furniture.

surrounded by big fields perfect for picnics and big games, plus a café with impeccable public toilets.

We were amazed by how fantastic this little place was and will be back for more fun in the future!
