Victoria Embankment ..

There are lots of beautiful parks in Nottinghamshire and one of our favourite places is at The Victoria Embankment. The first time I seen it, I wanted to move here!! I phoned my husband up and said, pack up we are moving.

Nothing ever materialized from that conversation but we love to visit when possible. They also hold lots of great events held here too, so lots of things to look out for. Last year I ran the Nottingham half marathon, we also had a great time at the Arm Forces Day where we watched the Red Arrows fly by and a bike race event was on not to long ago…

How cool is the park for the children!?!

Now if you can get up, you can get down!! “I’m not getting down until someone helps me” *rushes over to help* wow it looks a long way up there!!

    Gorgeous photos of Nottingham. I have seen a couple of movies that were shot there. Those fuchsia flowers are gorgeous as is your daughter in the polka dots dress. She looks very much like her pretty mom. =)

    It sounds like you have some great local parks and yes it does look perfect for children. I do hope the lovely long summer days last so you can make the most of your local area. Stunning photos, clearly a place that has made it's mark on you. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

    Looks like a wonderful park, with beautiful flowers and the children's play area looks fun. Now, why are the kids are always so eager to climb, but need help to climb down…;)
