The sun came out to play for the first time in what seems like ages and with it the cyclists, young and old to enjoy a day off from work and school. Jack was very much ready to rock as he'd already spent the morning striding on his loopfiets in the living room.

After the saddle was tightened we followed a path around the park and found an amazing petting zoo. This little farm is nestled in the centre of the park, and is a maze of small paddocks, hutches and homes for a variety of animals from chickens, sheep and goats to parakeets and guinea pigs. They also had a mass of children's scooters and tricycles, so we took the opportunity to get Jack on something with peddles. He picked out a trike and within about 5 minutes had the thing scooting right along. The whole petting zoo experience was lovely and the best part is it's all FREE for the community.
Ride Rating: 7
Based on incredibly cold wind, excessive whining from Jack because of incredibly cold wind and the unexpected issue with my saddle.
|Beautiful day to visit some green-space.|
|Our bikes had some company at the bike rack...|
|More bikes awaited their owners by the gates...|
|...and another little cluster of everyday bikes hanging out.|
|A giant bunny, there was about 4 in there we think, some thought it was a good day to sleep it off after a bust weekend.|
|This pleasant little pig was a sweetheart, each animal had a companion so no one was stressed and lonely.|
|More ducks hanging out. The sheep and goats came to say hello too.|
|The view of the Petting Zoo from the park. The whole place was clean and well maintained, with healthy animals who all seemed relaxed and sociable. We are impressed!|
