Botanic Gardens Southport Day Out July 09

Over the weekend we visited Southport Botanic Gardens. The gardens are like a big park with some beautiful flower displays. Meeting up with Aaron`s Nana T, Aunt Lorraine, Uncle Harry and cousin Dylan we wandered through the park.
There were many places to explore. We visited the animals, many birds of many different variety`s including peacocks, cockerels, hens and doves. Some birds are pictured below.
The children also played on the swings and climbing frames. They also played football.
We had a picnic for lunch which we all enjoyed. One part of the park has a band stand with brass band playing people sat on deck chairs and listened to the sounds of the trumpet and trombone.
The park is a very traditional place. There is a lovely cafe were we all retired for a nice cup of tea after such a lenghty stroll around the park. The gardens also hosts a museum. Botanic gardens is well worth a visit for a relaxing day out. For rest of our day and links see below photographs.
