I went to Park Orchards for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Leila and I went to Winterwood instead of shopping online. I thought it was miles away, which is why we hadn't been before, when in fact it's less than 10 minutes from our place. Of course we spent more than we intended, went to a gorgeous gift, clothing, homewares shop next door and then on to a cafe. I loved it and was bitterly disappointed to discover houses there are even more expensive than where we are now!
Today we returned and explored another relatively local park at 100 Acres Reserve. It was quite muddy and slippy - Ella went down 4 times (although without real injury!) - but I imagine quite gorgeous in warmer (not not snake warm) weather.
