On Saturday 14th May the sun shone brightly and the Peninsula Pacers enjoyed a walk around Ardgillan Park. The views out over the sea to Skerries and Balbriggan were breathtaking as we made our way down the hill to explore the forest trail. We were very impressed by the signage on the trail and the information points that gave an insight into the history of the castle and its neighbours. Also noted were placards geared to the younger generations which are colourful and interestingly educational. After our exploration of the forest and the Ladies Bridge to the beach we all made our way to Brambles Cafe for some excellent refreshments. Suitably fortified and rested we then ventured into the wonderland that are the Gardens, how envious they made all the gardeners among us ! Having enjoyed a very pleasant day we were delighted to be told by one of our group that we had actually covered some 7.4km, that’s 9000 steps, I’ll go along with that kind of keep fit !
