Title: A walk through Valentine's Park Ilford

This isn't my video, but I was in the park earlier today.  Glorious sunshine and the park was beautiful.  For those who have been away from the area:

Thanks, Hambo  - that was brilliant.

Lovely to think that some of those trees will have been there when we were (at various times)!

I had a little difficulty with this where the jerky, speeded up motion was making me feel queasy but I did manage to make it to the end.  

I never thought anything about my former home town would make me emotional but I found myself in floods of tears as I remembered so many happy afternoons in the park with ktype and our young daughter - in the children's playground, on the boating lake, ice creams at the café. And later: ambling under the trees; free music concerts on Sundays and regular visits to Valentines Mansion when it opened to the public.

There was so much about Ilford which we came to dislike but Valentines Park is beautiful. Thanks for posting.
