Often when Harry and I have travelled to Weston Super Mare on the bus, we have walked to Grove Park.
We always enjoy the floral displays that are kept in really beautiful condition and there is also a lovely lily pond and plenty of benches to sit and relax on in the sun.
Some times we go to Jill Dando's Memorial Gardens that I have already posted about before. Here. The garden was incorporated into one side of the park and we watched it being created on TV by BBCs *Ground Force*.
It is a tranquil place to go and sit and to remember the lovely TV presenter who was gunned down on her own doorstep some years ago.
We first noticed something beneath this tree by the path, when we first started visiting the park. Sometimes there are flowers under it.
There is a memorial under the tree dedicated to Nick Dutton, a young man who obviously died there, though we have never been able to find out how or why. It is rather sad and we often wonder if he came to a violent end in the park under that same tree. He is obviously somebody's son and my heart goes out to his relatives.
On the last occasion that we visited, a band was playing in a corner of the park and we stopped to listen for a while. It was *Life boat* weekend and there was quite a lot going on for the benefit of this wonderful charity that saves so many lives around these treacherous coasts in the Bristol Channel.
Every time we visit, there are always some new things to see as well as the old and the familiar.
Hope you enjoyed the feel of Grove Park on this occasion, as we walked through it together.
