This week it came up on my Timetop that it has been 2 years since we last visited St Nicholas Park in Warwick. I can't believe its been that long, where does the time go!

We have such an amazing day that I thought i'd tell you all about the park as its definitely worth a visit. A brill day out for the whole family

There is a Fun Park that operates on a token basis, these are 80p each or 11 for £8, I think you can also purchase bigger amounts too. The park consists of rides and amusements for all ages. All the rides bar a few are a token per person per ride so not bad at all compared to your average fair nowadays!!

They is also a lovely mini golf course which we had so much fun playing! Theres 18 holes and it cost around £4 per adult and £3 per child so again not expensive at all. There is the option of a cheaper 9 hole course too which is good for the younger children.

There is a cafĂ©/tea shop that serves hot and cold food and this looks out onto the outdoor pool and play area. The pool is a shallow splashzone type area so ideal for children of all ages. The play area is a park suitable again for most ages up to 12 I would say.

Right past the play area at the bottom of the park is the river where you can hire boats and pedaloes. We hired a swan boat for 30 minutes for about £12 I think, the scenary is amazing with Warwick Castle in the background

The day we went there was also donkey rides on the grassy area but I think that a weekly or monthly thing rather than every day

The park is free, you just have to pay to park which ranges from £1.40 for an hour up to £4 for over 6 hours

All in all a great family day out without breaking the bank! I would definitely recommend a visit if you are passing or local to Warwick

Here are a few photos from our day there....
