A little oasis in Preston by happypat

A little oasis in Preston

Actually we have lots of parks in Preston plus the River Ribble.
This is the one I know best & the nearest one to the centre of town.
I have posted a photo before but I walked through here today just for a change.
If you look at the very centre of the photo at the end of the path you can see my old school.
Not a school now though it's been a wine bar but I'm not sure but think it might be just offices now. Just googled & it still a restaurant.
Some rather grand buildings on all four sides of this park & they are mostly offices.

Winckley Square Gardens.

Three good things:
1. A trip into town to change Harrys jeans, I had a nice potter about.
2. A lovely browse round Waterstones the bookshop.
3. Spending my voucher I received for my birthday.
Lovely shot Pat. You had a lovely walk to school.

A lovely spot Pat , and the grass is still fairly green under the shade of all the trees !

@thistle @julzmaioro @beryl Yes surprising how green the grass is bug as you say lots if trees plus it's quite a lot lower than the main part of town. Just along the road from here to the left is the main Avenham Park where the river Ribble flows through.

What a lovely place to have an office. It is a beautiful park. A leisurely walk is so good for us!

@louannwarren I was trying to see how far 10,000 steps was Lou Ann apparently that's the number to aim for & I can now count them on my new phone!

Beautiful park!

A very English 'village green'. Glad they have so many in a city. People in those offices would probably have their lunch in this park!

@loweygrace @maggiemae @gijsje all the seats were taken & office works were eating their lunches. This is only a small part, I will show you more perhaps tomorrow, just wanted to include my old school.

It looks very peaceful, with no-one rushing about!

a nice green oasis Pat, the grass looks remarkably green for all the sun we have had

It still looks very green even though you haven't had much rain.

Very nice park - and a beautiful place to grow up and go to school in!

Lovely....welcome shady spaces on hot days. The colour of the stonework is beautiful and so nice to see the old school in good use.

I nearly went to take shots of the park whilst I was waiting for hubby! I used to work in the offices behind you on the second floor with a great view of the park!

Oh my we do coincide don't we? I went to Winckley Square for years & my dad had his offices just along to the right from this picture. It's beautiful now isn't it? Used to be a dark sort of place you would never dare go in during unsociable hours!

Parks are lovely things in Summer, especially if you can find the shady bits
