Saturday afternoons are no longer filled with rugby, and I take T out.
These are busier times than my usual morning visits, and it's interesting to see how people use the park.
My usual route, established over the past year, is to enter the park by the station, take a left to look at the ducks in the river, down to the play area for the swings and slide, then up via the ship climbing frame past the cafe.
A month of doing this after lunch has confirmed as hard fact what was previously a mere impression.
More middle class families hang around by the cafe, and are less likely to venture to the play park at the bottom.
I wonder why?
