Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 2nd August, 2017)
A walk in the park
Mesnes Park is once more a pleasure to visit. All praise to the many people who have toiled long and hard to make it so and may it remain a joy for the generations of Wigan people yet to come.
Nice photo Ron It's Always good to see your photos,I'm a Big fan of yours
There is something timeless about Wigan Park, as there is with Haigh Hall and The Plantations; a part of all our lives, I suppose.
Lawrence ( Perth WA) you shoudnt be making comments like that about Rons photos.
How do you think its going to make all the other amateur camera people who go out in all kinds of weather in and around Wigan taking photos for Wigan worlds Photo a Day.
Classic scene and always recognisable instantly. Give credit were it is due for Ron (and all the others) if Lawrence likes Ron's photos good for him! He is only saying what he feels. He's a long,long way from home.
About 5 years ago I took my granddaughter Millie to the park in the school holidays. There was a grand event organised for children - it was marvellous with water games and all kinds of activities with a supermarket trolly dash game. I still have the photograph which was in the paper and there she is right at the front. So it's not just about distant memories in the park. Sadly it only happened for two years on the trot and every year the grand kids ask can they go again. All the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves making friends and joining in.
I hadn't been in the park for over 20 years and just before Christmas I ventured in. I have walked through regularly since then.
Mick, pram, dummy, spit.
An excellent shot of the park,which is now very nice,the people add a lot to the scene.
Mick, stop being a childish numpty, if you took decent pictures people might like yours as much.
Mick stay in Ladbrokes please !
Great scenic shot Ron.

Mick... long walk on a short pier... try it!
This from a man that was talking about the Weind on yesterdays photo. Very good photo by the way Ron.
Stunning shot Ron....not been there for a while ..such nice memories....Cheers!!
Lawrence (Perth WA): just ignore Mick, he's always seeking attention, usually by saying summit that knowingly upsets folk. Any attention, even if negative, is better than none. Best course of action is to ignore it.
Lovely picture, Ron - could have been captured anytime in the last 50 years.
As a fellow contributor to P-A-D I have always been a fan of Ron's excellent photographs and this is another beautiful evocative shot
