Another [Day] Visit To Taunton

As we enjoyed our first short visit to Taunton we went back again for another day of fun exploring this new place. We headed to the shops to see some new things and then we discovered this amazing park at the end of the high street.

It is called Vivary Park. We just saw the gate and then saw a lot of family going in and we just went in!

The park is massive! I dont even know where to start with the description!

They have of course lovely plants and blooms which I blogged in here > Vivary Park. They have birds feeding area and the ducks are just too naughty!

The park also has a massive open space / field for family picnics and plays. A sensory garden, bandstand and a fountain!

An ice cream truck is a park must too!

And my sweet little boy brought Mom some daisies.

The highlight of my son's time in this garden is in the big sand play area. I didnt took photos as there are lots of kids and we just want to concentrate on play. Around the said play area is a model train track! There are enthusiast who are doing some works on their model trains. They are amazing. We just stand there drooling at their cute working trains!

When we went out we walk a bit more around town. And still saw so many interesting things. We were suppose to fo to Somerset Museum but they are close on Sundays (awwws)!

And like our first visit we ended our Taunton trip with a coffee shop stop. Which is becoming out little family tradition.

I have driven past Taunton so many times but never stopped there. your park looks a wonderful find with so much going on. I laughed at your naughty duck photo but how sweet are those daisies for Mummy? Lovely post, thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

I have been to Taunton once, mainly because we had drove past so many times we got curious and stopped off for a visit. It was a long time ago though. I love that park, it looks amazing. I'd have loved to have seen the model trains. x

Hi Merlinda, it sounds as if you had a great day out in Taunton. I am pleased to see that ice cream vans are not a thing of the past and sadly seeing one (and eating a 99 ice cream, would probably have been the highlight of my day!).

I like the idea of a sensory park and seeing the trains must have been interesting too.

Thanks for sharing your day out.

Looks like you had a good find with the park. Love the idea of having model trains around the play area.

What a beautiful park. We've been to Taunton when we were heading to Minehead for Butlins. This needs to go on my bucketlist ;) #countrykids

What a fab place to visit. My little one would've gone crazy for that model train. We really must make it west as soon as we get back to the UK, we're missing out on so much!
