Sunday in the Park

It's the Bank Holiday weekend and it's very good weather. Do you get in the car and sit in queues behind other cars heading for the countryside or coast - or do you take a walk and go to your local park? We opted for the latter on the basis I've started to feel rather better and needed to start doing a bit more walking around.

This is the world's oldest public park - Victoria Park in the East End of London. It has rather a lot of nice Victorian cast iron benches which line the edges of the main promenades. It's also a great place for people watching.

You can see other views of Victoria Park in the links below.



  1. glad you are feeling better. I love people watching, parks, beaches, cafes are all great. I love your sketchbooks Katherine.

  2. I used to play cricket in Victoria Park, many years ago! Lovely sketch.

  3. It's ages since I saw people playing cricket in the park. Lots of other ball games though.

    And they still have the middle aged chaps with the motorised boats with lots of smoke on the boating pond!
