A great day out in some stunning Capability Brown landscape. Lots of space for picnics and games, follies to explore, and a good play park.
Croome Park is a National Trust property with a fine manor house and 'Capability' Brown landscape.
In this landscape, we had a great sunny day out in April.
The place is excellent for picnics and has some good walks over gentle hills, around lakes, over bridges, and past many follies.
Croome Park Easter Trail
Being April, it was Easter Trail time. Armed with our maps, we were off.
The landscape around Croome Park was 'enhanced' by Capability Brown, and although it does look very artificial in places, it's still leagues above many man-made town parks of more recent times, and it was a great place to explore.
The trail was completed, and their treasure made it all the way home, despite a warm car. They didn't last long at home, though!
There are many walks around Croome Park. If your family has discovered Geocaching, then there are also some caches hidden around a route.
Croome Park Play Area
Another thing that's different at Croome Park is the play area.
The entrance at Croome Park is an old WW2 RAF medical centre. The play park is themed appropriately, with a slide shaped like a crashed aircraft and a command centre.
