Well, what a treat this little park is! Hat tip to Steve B for the info.
Here's our weekend morning routine:
*Assemble baby, dog, buggy, parents. (1 hour+)
*Exit door. (20 minutes)
*Walk to Whitecross Street. (10 minutes)
*Head to Fix Coffee - get all the coffee possible. (10 minutes)
*Husband to Waitrose for supplies. (SOLO, lucky duck -- this is what I get for refusing to cook).
*Me with dog/baby to Fortune Street Park. (30 seconds from Waitrose)
*Sit on a park bench, enjoy green space, nice park, loads of other children/babies happily chirping, eating at picnic tables, kicking balls around, playing on playground, etc. (5 minutes)
*Spread baby out on blanket (4 minutes). Put back in buggy (2 minutes)
*Let dog relieve herself. Responsibly dispose (15-45 minutes depending on her mood).
*More coffee from Giddyup Coffee Cart in park (THANK GOD - 2 minutes)
*Meet husband, walk back with all the groceries. Baby sleeps. Dog half asleep.
*Return home! Happy, caffeinated parents, full refrigerator, all beasts with fresh air in their lungs and sleep in their eyes.
C'est fini -- that's as glam as it gets with a baby, folks! Thank god for places like Fortune Street Park, it makes it all quite enjoyable!
This is a busy playground and green space tucked behind Whitecross Street. A good place for devouring your spoils from the street market. It's busy and rightfully so largish playground for mixed ages with an interesting and unusual range of play equipment. The kids always loved it here when they were little..I love the sign reminding adults that kids have priority for the play equipment written for me I guess.
