I take Chico to Oaks Park a lot lately; it’s an oasis of grenery just off the Banstead Road between Wallington and Banstead in Surrey.
The park features a rolling hill with long grass and is surrounded by woods with a dozen or so well-marked trails to follow for a bit of shade.
I planted a tree over here after the hurricane in the 80’s; it’s hard to believe that this is just 5 miles from smoggy Croydon.
There’s a cafe here where you can get decent snacks and the best bit about it is that the park is not accessible via public transport, which means an absence of push chairs and rowdy little oiks.
Cheeks loves a walk here and so do I.
