So we decided to explore Buckingham a bit more due to our recent discovery of its waterfall (HERE).. and guess what.. we discovered another one!!!!!!
We started the circular walk near chandos park, as it follows the river Ouse, from the flosh (the waterfall) and lords bridge, admired the university of Buckingham, then started towards the Ford Street Bridge, detoured to the old goal but then returned from there, as the weather started looking dodgy. The entire walk is 2.5 miles- in beautiful setting- pretty waterfalls, close by river, hanging willow trees, ducks crossing and plenty of small play parks on the way. There are plenty of picnic benches on the way but you could just sit on the lush grass next to the flowing river, with ducks quacking through. There were many groups of students sitting around, chatting , some playing music. The overall atmosphere was just amazing
On this particular walk, we came across two play parks- The chandos one and a skate park, both pretty basic, yet an effective break from the walk for the children
Chandos: contained swings, little climbing frame with slides, small mounds, obstacle course, zip wire and a round about. There is also a multi-use basketball court, Tennis Club and Bowls Club near Chandos park.
Bridge street Skate park: contained swings, a rusty (decommissioned) climbing fort with slides, small mounds/ stepping stones, toddler fort with slide and skate park. This play area is quite rusty and needs a major revamp soon.
