Blackwater Park – Riverside Loop

As parks go Blackwater Park is very new having only opened in June 2015. A very buggy-friendly & accessible 1.5km tarmac track circles the park which includes an enclosed playground and playing pitches. There is ample free parking on site. This is a great asset to the town of Navan and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Guest Feature – @iamlauriem

Walk – Day 7 – #bwiactiveoutdoors

walk

What better way to mark Day 7 (walk) of our photo challenge with a guest feature from Laurie of www.iamlauriem.com. As a parent who shares a love for the outdoors like ourselves, Laurie has written a beautiful and witty piece all about walking. She captured everything that walking means to me and makes some wonderful points how it such a big part of our lives (sometimes without us even realising). Once our little ones take their first steps, it’s such a milestone and one we anticipate with great excitement (hence the above photo is of our little munchkins hand-in-hand).

So please sit back, enjoy and continue reading below all about the joys and wonder of walking. If it resonates with you as much as it did with me you’ll be grabbing those boots/shoes/runners and heading out for a walk with a whole new appreciation for it. A great big thank you to Laurie for sharing with us all.
