The River Dee
As I exited the bottom of the Roman gardens I come to the River Dee. I had originally planned to buy a ticket at the quayside for a half an hour cruise along the river, but got distracted when I noticed the beautiful Queens park suspension bridge. Instead, I headed towards the bridge. I know it’s a suspension bridge, but I didn’t quite expect it to be as bouncy as it was to walk along. In-fact, I almost lost my footing on it! Anyway, it was well worth the the distraction, especially at the stop and stare moment mid way. The views are stunning!
Queens park suspension bridge
I did plan to take my cruise after exploring this bridge, but again was distracted when I seen people walking into an entrance. I wondered where the entrance led to, so decided to have a nosey. The entrance turned out to be the entrance to Grosvenor Park.
Grosvenor Park dates back to 1867 and is one of the UK’s most perfect and most beautiful examples of a victorian Park.
The park is touched up with neatly lined trees along with ornaments, statues, flower beds and a number of grade II listed features.
It also features a miniature railway and playground area. It costs £1.50 for adults, £1 for children, or £3.50 for two adults and three children.
Other features include a cafe which offers drinks and light snacks along with toilets.
All three of the places mentioned are within walking distance of the city centre, so definitely worth visiting.
I never did end up going back to the boat trip. I ended up being distracted again by something else ha. I’ll save that for my next blog.
Thanks for reading stay blessed 🙏🏾
