St Nicholas Park


We went to St Nicholas Park in Warwick for our daily walk yesterday as Jephson and Mill Gardens are closed. A body was found in the river Leam on Friday morning and the parks have been closed ever since and will continue being so until the cause of death has been established. The body has been identified as that of a 65 year old man, his name has not been released yet.




Situated in the centre of Warwick, St Nicholas Park is vast and varied.




Due to the pandemic, the coffee shop, seen in the distance, is closed except for take-aways.








One of the park's nicest features is the stream, which runs along a small section of it.




The planting alongside the stream is wonderful and very creative.




Lots of colour at this time of year










A small bridge in the middle of it,




allows one to step over to the other side









At the end of the stream the river walk begins







It's a wonderful river walk




The ducks having a wonderful time in the sunshine







An avenue of copper beeches in the distance




Everything is so lush at the moment




The playing field on our left is massive




We reached the avenue of copper beeches




Surely, this must be the only public toilet in the whole country that has a thatched roof




Back at the stream




We then went along the river again,  but in the opposite direction




so that we could access the lower part of the park




mature trees




great contrast of colours




and some formal planting




finally, it was time to go back home.
