A Walk in Severnake Park

I got to enjoy some very nice spring weather while in England, and tried to spend some time outside. Savernake Park is just down the road from where my friends live.

The deer is the symbol of Bracknell Forest Council - a nice wooden statue in the park

Savernake Park takes its name from Savernake Forest in Wiltshire, renowned for its stately, mile-long avenue of beech trees. Acording to the website it is likely that the site used to be part of the Great Windsor Forest, a vast expanse of royal hunting forest going back to the times of the Doomsday Book. In the 1990s Savernake Park was adopted by Bracknell Forest Council who now manage the site for recreation and wildlife.

The geese were making a LOT of noise :-)
