Well worth the huff and puff

It is a great pity that a most beautiful park like Williamson Park is at the top of a very steep hill. However once you get there the views of Morecambe and the bay are really breathtaking.

Take your family there for an afternoon in the school break and don’t forget your camera.

At this time of the year the many varieties of daffodils growing in the dell below the memorial are a colourful sight and later the cherry trees will be covered in pink blossom.

It is certainly a wonderful place for children to play in, with all its steps amongst the rocks and twisting woodland paths.

My son, when young, went with a friend on several occasions to play cowboys and Indians. It gave them both an appetite for a really good tea.

It would be a wonderful place for a summertime birthday party. You could take a picnic or use the cafe (with clean toilets).

The scarlet rhododendrons would make a good background for lots of photographs.
