Dulwich Park - A Queens Park but Not a Royal Park (Part 2)

By NEILMUIR1
May 20, 2010

Dulwich Park is famous for its Rhododendrons and Azaleas in May, but there is a lot more to this wonderful place than that. Its wildfowl and wildlife abound; it is managed with the environment in mind, proving an area of outstanding beauty and historical interest can be a place for everyone as well!

Dear Charleen, thank you for your comments! I did try to have something for everyone, hence why there was Horses and Ponies mentioned and shown. i wonder who that was for?
Glad that you had a look at the tour as well. Lucy claims that it is good fun on the tour, but she did not get to the Tennis courts as it was too far to walk!
I wonder if your friend Jan will like the Article?
Got to do another one now on a subject close to my heart, so that will be out soon, I hope.
Then there is Chelsea to look forward too, I cannot even think how many pictures I Will need for that! I took 699 photos just to do the Park Articles.
Nobody wants to go on the Horse Carousel with me which is a shame as you will not fall of and it is not like a modern fun fair as it does not go very fast.
Everyone dresses up in Victorian costumes, and the Carousel is run by a steam powered traction engine that also powers a fair organ!
I hope Charley is well?
Kindest Regards.
Neil.

Charley is standing in the bottom pasture, the donkeys and Charley have internal clocks that ha them in certain spots in the pasture at certain times. When It is 3:00 they are braying for something to eat. They don't have a skinny place on their bodies, even their ears are fluffy. I saw the horses in the Virtual tour. I really did enjoy it.
The Carosel, I'll go with you and we can enjoy the ride. It would be fun to dress in Victorian fare to go on the ride. I would love one of those hugh hats with Feathers and flowers. Oh, that is a beautiful thought. Have to stay out of the wind, won't I ???
Thank you again, Neil. You are a wonderful Host.
