Lovely place to go for a stroll during the winter months. Empty at the side we visit and always brings a cheer to see the ponies. Kids love it and it's a nice breather for myself. The play area tends to be busy during warmer seasons but nevertheless it's a nice park and theres always enough space to have a picnic with your family.

We had a beautiful day yesterday in Sutton Park. It was my Mum's birthday. As we couldn't do the usual celebrations, I met up with my Mum and my Daughter. We enjoyed a picnic in the car. And then we enjoyed a lovely leisurely walk. The sun was shining and there were lots of people enjoying the lovely weather too. It was beautiful, a lovely day.
