Queen's Park, Loughborough

We had a bit of a shopping trip last weekend, combined with a park and cafe, of course.

This park is within the town centre which suits us fine.

Queen's Park opened to celebrate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1899 to promote an healthy town.
It makes us happy to walk around, if that counts.

The Bandstand with opened in 1902. The building you can see behind the band stand is the Carillon which was started in 1902.

We sat inside, away from the open door for dinner. Abit cold in January for eating outdoors.

It looks as if a few people thought the same as well.

These an aviary in the park.

Hope you like those.
