Desborough Pocket Park

Look what I discovered today!  I had no idea how big this Pocket Park would be, it was a lot bigger than other Pocket Parks that I've been to so it was a nice surprise to find seating areas, park benches, litter bins and even a couple of large ponds - one of which appears to have 2 dipping platforms!

The only thing I didn't like was that one of the ponds was completely invisible and the only reason I knew it was there was because I could hear the gentle trickle of the stream flowing in to it and on a busy/noisy day I suspect you may not hear the rippling water so you may end up wandering in to what you think is land but is most definitely not.

Does this look like a pond to you or a continuation of the surrounding grass and would a child or pet dog accidentally run in to it?  Other than the tiny warning sign in the middle (that you may not see until it's too late) there is no barrier/fence around this deep water.

With some fantastic places to have a picnic, I will definitely be visiting this beauty spot again!
