The Harlow Town Park and Pet's Corner

Had been to Harlow recently and spent some time in the Town Park. The Harlow Town Park situated on the north side of the town is a 164 acre park and is within easy walking distance of the town centre.

The park has beautiful landscapes, lots of trees, open spaces and river walks leading to the River Stort. There is an adventure playground for children and a bandstand which hosts music concerts and other family events. The Newfoundland Garden which was planted in 1997 is set in a deep valley within the Arid garden.

There is a paddling pool to splash around in the summers. The Water Gardens houses a scuplture called Pisces and this is a major attraction on the park. The Spurries House is a nice place top relax and have a snack and a drink from the adjoining cafe.

The Pet's Corner
Pet's Corner is a small and friendly farm kind of environment within the park which houses a large rang eof farm animals, fishes and birds. It also has some exotic animals.

Pet's Corner works in association with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust to help on re-establishing rare and endangered species. Children and adults alike, enjoy walking through the place and looking at the animals. Some of the animals are left free and they are quite friendly.

If you happen to visit Harlow, do drop in to the Pets Corner. I am sure you will love it as much as I did. The Pets’ Corner is open to the public every day from 11.00am until 5.00pm except on Christmas and Boxing Day.
