Heritage Park - tulips, swings, goldfish & fountain
This week, we were introduced to the somewhat hidden away Heritage Park in Grapevine. What a treat!
The playground has two playsets - one a mini-version for truly little ones (like Peanut) and the other for 'advanced' players (ie, 2+) - there are swings, a merry-go-round and large trees shading picnic tables and grassy spots.
Right next to the playpark is the Botanical Garden filled now with blooming tulips, pansies and other early spring delights. A fountain with open edges quickly drew the little ones in for splashing until their clothes were drenched. It was a lovely sunny day so everyone dried as we strolled further to see the koi fish and green expanse of lawn perfect for toddling.
Peanut had a blast and slept so soundly after a few hours of fresh air and outdoor excitement.
