Recently we visited Stratford for my husband's family reunion. We walked through King Edward Park which was lovely with several bridges and one swinging bridge which fascinated our grandson. It is a lovely and peaceful place to visit if you are out for a walk.

A lovely river runs though the park which make great scenery to relax or eat. Definitely a picture perfect place to come relax... More
