Fitz Park, Keswick

This is the third post in my series about a day in October.

After an enjoyable lunch in The Wainwright, we went to Fitz Park.  The flooding caused by storm Desmond in 2015 led to the temporary closure of this park.  The River Greta flows through it.  After the river overflowed its bank parts of the park were unsafe.  Restoration work is still being carried out, but the park is returning to its former glory.

Like Hope Park (in a previous post) Fitz Park is managed by Keswick Town Council.  The park is divided by a road on which Keswick Museum is situated. We visited the part, which does not have a children’s play area and playing fields.  My photo for the miniature photo challenge was taken in Fitz Park on the same day.

There were representatives of all the seasons in flower at once! Rhododendrons, which flower in late spring were having a second turn. Potentillas, which flower in summer were still in bloom.  Winter jasmine was flowering in autumn.  They added colour and interest to the wonderful autumn shades.
