Walking at Lily Hill Park in Bracknell

Lily Hill Park in Bracknell is one of our favourite places to go for a family walk and adventure. The park is made up of 23 hectares of public open space which includes woodland areas, open green space, ponds, a boardwalk and sculptures plus plenty of wildlife and flowers. It’s also home to England’s longest picnic bench - carved from a single piece of wood. We park in the North Car Park which is free of charge and can be found off Lily Hill Road, Bracknell, RG12 2RX. Once parked we take either the path next to the noticeboard or the path down the steps and under The Green Man sculpture. The Green Man is a wonderful wooden carving and great for a photo opportunity. Both paths join together and then we take the path to the left sometime heading off the path up into the woods (depend

A visit to Bracknell Market

If Bracknell Market is on when we are at The Lexicon we will often stop and purchase some fresh fruit, generally strawberries because we can’t resist the look of them when we walk past! The fruit stall always looks so appealing and there is always a great selection of fruit and vegetables on offer. The market is set up outside Princess Square and has a range of traders including bakery items, meats, fresh cut flowers and more. There are also catering vans set up so you can buy a range of cuisines including Indian, Jamaican, Italian and more.

Walking and exploring the grounds at South Hill Park

We enjoy going for a walk around the South Hill Park nature trail in the woodland area which are made of of wooden and metal sculptures. The sculptures are animal themed eg bee, fox and dragonfly to mention a few. We have got a buggy round the woodland paths before but there are some steepish climbs with drops to the side and next time will opt to take the baby carrier. We also took the dog with us on our adventure.

The lakes are a great place to feed the ducks and geese. There is plenty of open space for children to run and their are beautiful rose garden next to the main South Hill Park buil...

Our Half Term visit to The Fairy Tale Forest at The Lexicon, Bracknell

On the Tuesday of the February Half Term we visited The Fairy Tale Forest at The Lexicon. I had pre-booked tickets online and paid full price for our tickets - £2 per child plus a booking fee of 30p and I was free of charge as an accompanying adult (there is a charge for additional adults). The Fairy Tale Forest is on until 22nd February 2019 and you are advised to book tickets online to avoid disappointment. Upon arrival, we were checked into the event and children were asked to sit on bean bags underneath a giant inflatable green leaf. The decoration certainly helped set the scene for the story telling. There was also seating provided for the adults. Little Red Reading Hood and the Wild Wolf then introduced themselves and led the session which lasted about 20 minutes. The audienc

Dinosaur Trail at Peacocks Meadow, Bracknell (trail now finished)

On Thursday 16th August 2018 I took my little one along to the Dinosaur Trail Event which the Bracknell Forest Council Parks and Countryside Events Team had put on for the afternoon. Everyone taking part in the Dinosaur Trail met at the picnic area at Peacocks Meadow, Jeanett’s Park, where the children collected their trail map and answer sheet and were also given three pine cones to ‘feed the dinosaurs’. After the briefing we headed out on the trail looking for clues and dinosaur eggs hidden around the meadow. The answers to the clues revealed a word, which was the answer to the trail. The trail answer could then be exchanged for a prize. There was also then opportunity to answer a quiz on the way round which was great for the older kids. The trail lasted for up to an hour and

The Lego Brick Safari and Treasure Hunt at The Lexicon, Bracknell

Yesterday 1st August 2018 saw the launch of The Lexicon's Lego Brick Safari and Treasure Hunt. A number of Lego animals have moved into the shopping centre for a few weeks during the school holidays including a giant Elephant, Lion and Crocodile. There are large animals around the shopping centre all made out of Lego bricks. We went to see them today and thought the Lego models were really impressive with the lion and elephant being our favourite. Next to each large animal there was a sign which explained how many hours it took to make each sculpture - a lot of hours and hardwork went into creating the creatures. Then there are an additional 10 lego brick animal sculptures hidden around the shops. The Lexicon are running a Treasure Hunt which you can enter until 14th August 2018, ...

AD – Review // Little Kickers, Bracknell and Camberley

Coach Dom kindly invited myself and my little one to have a go at a 6 week Little Kickers course in Bracknell. My child thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the weekly classes, which took place on a Friday afternoon and alongside learning football techniques including goal scoring, dribbling and stopping the ball it was great to see my child running around having fun whilst also developing other skills including listening to instructions and the whistle, taking turns, hand-eye co-ordination, tidying up and balancing objects to name a few. I found that the coaches who ran the sessions had a great approach with the children and I thought that the classes were relaxed and although you watch your child, they come to see you for regular water breaks and you are always welcome to help your chi...
