I’ve been hearing the buzz about the Broadway Park for a couple of months. Usually accompanied by widened eyes and gleeful exclamations of the range of play equipment and the size of the park. I tried to do some research online to see some photos of the park and find directions, but didn’t find much. So let me help you …
Get yourself to Broadway, a beautiful village in the Cotswold, and find yourself somewhere to park. (This may take some time. Bring your pounds and your pence for the ‘pay and display’ car lots.)
Take a stroll up the High Street and look for the sign:
Play on the fitness equipment! No reason for a mom to feel she has to fall asleep in blissful peace while her kids are playing happily. No, mom, get up and do some pull-ups and some crunches. Work it.
Enjoy the phenomenal view, and — if you are a more hardy soul — walk along the public footpath all the way to Broadway Tower. (Some views from You Know You’re In England When… and Week out: Costwold) We, instead, strolled back through town and had some perfectly delicious ice cream from the cute pink and white striped street vendors’ carts. Strawberry and clotted cream, anyone?
With a picnic lunch and a sunny day, this park is good for several hours of entertainment. Add it in to the mix of a busy day — perhaps lavender fields, then the Tower, and a playground pit stop before wandering through Broadway — and you’ve got something to keep the kids entertained all day.
