New Bradwell sandpit park

I’m not actually sure what this park is called but for the purposes of this blog it’s the ‘New Bradwell Sandpit park’ as that’s probably the best description of it. My toddler really enjoyed visiting this park because of it’s sandpit with wooden structure, rocket and climbing frame. Knowing there was sand there, we took a bucket and spade. The climbing frame is a bit weather worn but it still has a twisty slide which is always a bonus. My baby boy went on the swings and sat in the sand. In fact, at 9 months old this was his first experience of sand, and yes, he tried to eat it… when do they stop doing that? I forget. There’s a good sized traditional slide there as well. The best place to park is behind the church on St James’ Street. You can walk down there and turn right and you’ll come to New Bradwell Local Park. There’s quite a nice climbing frame there although nothing else special.

Park is situated just off Newport Road in New Bradwell, approximate postcode is MK13 5LG.
