The Boscawen Park, Truro
When we visit Truro we occasionally have a packed-lunch at Boscawen Park, overlooking the Truro River. In the distance is Truro Cathedral, as can be seen in the photo above.
There is usually something interesting to see depending on the time of year and the weather.
On our last visit the tide was out so lots of birds about looking for juicy morsels.
We tend to walk a lap of the park and sometimes continue to Malpas. The boat below has been stranded in the mud for ages and is gradually deteriorating.
Much of the main park is dedicated to children with climbing games, trails, swings, slides and so on. We were there at half term, so lots of children everywhere. I didn't, therefore, snap any photos of the kids facilities.
We walked alongside the Truro River, which has some industry including the sorting of scrap metal. When the tide is in boats are able to pick up the sorted metal.
The park has a cricket pitch and three football (soccer) pitches plus eight tennis courts.
A roller was out to ensure a perfect cricket pitch.
The park has a myriad of flowers, in many beds, all well looked after.
Walking further alongside the river there are various small boats. All in all a pleasant place for a stroll, with lots to do for children. There is also a cafe and toilets.
It's not somewhere to go for a serious walk but it's a nice place to munch on a pasty and have a break before travelling on.
