Such Fun at Nonsuch Park

Nonsuch Park

I love going to new parks. This makes me a bit sad and pathetic, I know. But it’s so fun finding a new place to run and play. It’s even better when there isn’t a playground so the kids are forced to explore rather than slide down the millionth slide. So today we decided to visit Nonsuch Park in Cheam.

Nonsuch ParkApparently, Henry VIII had a small village demolished to build Nonsuch Park and the original mansion, as ‘none such place like it’. Nonsuch is 250 acres of loveliness. We walked, climbed trees, picked wildflowers, explained that we can’t pick flowers from the ornamental gardens and had a picnic.

Have you been to any new parks this summer? I need to find another new one to visit in South West London or Surrey. Let me know if you have any good suggestions.

  1. This park is not far from where I used to live, although I don’t think I’d ever been there. I agree, I love finding new parks, it is nice to have somewhere new to explore. You’ve probably done Richmond Park? I love the gardens in there.

  2. I love finding new parks as well! I get local park-malaise! Gorgeous photos, love xx #ordinarymoments

  3. Oh this looks so lovely and a great day too. Were up in Yorkshire so my suggestions wouldn’t be helpful, but I so much love sunny days in beautiful spots like this. #ordinarymoments x

  4. It’s not pathetic, it’s one of our favourite things to do as well! We love finding new parks to explore. This looks beautiful. x

  5. I loved Nonsuch park as a child. It was one of our favourite places to visit. You can’t beach Bushy Park or Richmond Park although we used to enjoy Morden Hall Park too. Or a ramble on Wimbledon Common hunting for Wombles! Virginia Water too – that’s our current fave as just down the road from us x
