My nearest park, a five minute stroll from my front door is West Norwood Park. It’s not as pretty as Dulwich park, nor as varied as Brockwell Park, nor as steeped in history as Crystal Palace Park, and it lacks the surprise and wildness of the Dulwich and Sydenham Hill woods. But…
Dog enjoys it, it’s never very crowded and it’s close.
And it has the best view of the city and its shiny towers and promise of golden pavements… sort of.
I’ve been taking a photo from the same spot, with my back to the forest nursery for the past few months, watching the seasons and the weather change
