Sywell Country Park

A Day at Sywell Country Park

Today I took my 4 boys to Sywell Country Park to get some fresh air and burn off some energy. I think that some days the house just isn’t big enough for all these boys and it’s hard work trying to calm them down indoors.

So we took a picnic, and buckets and spades to play in the sand (I usually forget so I’m feeling chuffed that I remembered for once).

Today was another scorcher, but there was plenty of shade in the play area where I watched the children play. It was very busy, lots of preschoolers because it was during the week so older children were mostly at school. Max has learnt how to go down the firemans pole so he was eager to show me.

After we left the play area, we went for a walk around the reservoir at Sywell Country Park. I had never been all the way round before, and had no idea how far it was, which now I think of it wasn’t a great idea on my own with the children. I know now that it’s 2 1/2 miles. It took about an hour, with a few snack stops along the way. We enjoyed the wooded area because of the much needed shade! And when we finished the walk the boys were really mucky from collecting rocks and sticks – as kids do.


I love being outdoors with my kids, spending quality time and chatting about whatever they want to chat about. Even if that is Star Wars and Captain Underpants.
