The friends of Waterloo Park organised a free fun day for families.

Activities included tree identification, nature trains and the chance to get up close to some rescued animals such as birds, owls and giant snails.

The Roberts family from Taneger Close said: "We loved getting close to nature" while the Heartup family from Thorpe St Andrew said: "A great outdoor experience and the sunshine has made it even better"

The George family of Wild Road said: "It's a blessing living near this Park and we've enjoyed nature activities today. It's great that there's no extra costs and it's very friendly."
