Great photo, but aren't you supposed to keep off the grass

In all it's Glory .

What a lovely photo! I remember going to the café with my Mam and Dad in the late 1950s when I was a little girl. You could sit upstairs then and I used to have a glass of fizzy Vimto with a blob of ice-cream in it. When we came out I, along with other children, used to do "roly-polies" down those grassy slopes. To be honest, the atmosphere in the café today isn't worlds away from what it was then, and the memories come flooding back.

A different 'slant' from a different 'snapper' - cheerful view too!

I once spoke to someone who'd been a sailor and travelled far..he said that Mesnes Park was the nicest he'd ever seen...thank you John,that's a beauty.


Comment by Brendell on 14th September 2018 at 12:15
Mesnes Park is surely a treasure. I have seen many lovely parks on my travels but the crowning glory is surely that wonderful pavilion. The fountain is remarkable too. The gardeners should also be complimented, they do a wonderful job.


Comment by Mick on 14th September 2018 at 12:47
Ive been all over the world and can tell you that Mesnes park is not the nicest, and beside sailors usually end up with the first woman they see in the first bar outside of the ship yard gates in my experience

Thanks for your comments. Yes I managed to dodge "parky" for this quick snap. Wigan Park is truly a great treasure to be admired, and congratulations to the gardeners who keep it in such a great condition.

So Micky dripping,all sailors are liars are they I hope they read this.you obnoxious little man

Mick, I would check your blood line ! I think Captain Scott may have gifted you some of his DNA . Far and wide has nothing on you .
Bet your journals put Scott’s to shame .
I read a while ago they recovered a bicycle encrusted in the ice , just below the summit of Everest. Revered by Sherpas and monks it now rests alongside the skull of a Yeti

Lovely, peaceful photo, John. It's a classic.The nicest park that I have ever been in and I have travelled all over. The next nicest park to Mesnes Park is Queen Elizabeth park in Vancouver.

Good on you, lad.
