We went to Wensum Park not knowing what to expect as we’ve never been before. We were very pleased with everything this park has to offer. Once you’re in the park it’s hard to imagine you’re in the City Centre. That’s one of the main reasons I love living in Norwich, even though it’s a City it doesn’t always feel like it.
There is also a little swimming pool and a smaller toy area for toddlers. Sadly, I couldn’t take any photos as it was so busy, I was too busy chasing after my children. All you parents’ know how that goes.
This post does have a large number of photos but I just want to show you how stunning this park is and some of the amazing things it has to offer. If you live in or you’re visiting then this park is a great place to spend an hour or so. There is free parking all around the park.
The site of Wensum Park was purchased by the City in 1907, by 1910 the site had a swimming bath, bathing pool, wading pool, and shelter. Sadly soon after, the areas surrounding the pools were rundown so a scheme was put forward to develop the site as a formal public park which opened in 1925.
