Today we went to Tredegar Park with the kids and a couple of friends. The weather was lovely so we took a picnic, and some outdoor activities and set up camp in the park.
The park is huge and boasts a lake, pond, a vast amount of space, a shop and a playground. Literally everything we needed. We packed our own food and took along some traditional games such as a ball, kite and a frisbee. Bean had a great time, she had masses of space to run around, and freedom as she could run quite far, safely as we could always see her. She spent a lot of time in the playground too.
Jelly also had great fun running around, and when she got tired I took her on a lovely walk around the lake and she fell asleep in her pushchair, enabling me to get some sunbathing in!!
There is a little kiosk selling drinks and ice creams if you need it and the National Trust shop sells kites and balls and frisbees if you don’t already own them. A public toilet is situation right behind the kiosk and next to the playground – really handy when you have young kids!
We had a great day out, and it was a real bargain – only cost was £2 parking and cost of ice creams – not really an essential but a nice treat!!
Of course the site is also home to Tredegar House, a National Trust property, which looks great, and one we hope to visit again, but on a less sunny day!
