Hi! This will be my last post on Glasgow until I go back and get to see Iceland later this year. But, do not worry. I will have posts about where I live. This post is about a park that I went to. The park’s name is Glasgow Green and it is an exciting park.
It was a cold morning with lots of pigeons looking at me. My best friend likes pigeons but I think their eyes are creepy. When we arrived, I felt a little warmer. I saw an arch that had been made my Romans. It was a beautifully carved piece of architecture. Sometimes, I like to dream of myself in a Roman general’s clothing. When I nod to myself about being a general, I realize they did not have ramen.
We walked around for a little bit and walked on a bridge and saw geese and swans. There was one part of the park that was full of pigeons that it was insane. But, they did not even do anything! I was a bit suspicious that they were planning to take over the world and were going to attack when we let our guard down. But, they did not. I was so relieved.
We went around the park and saw lots of dogs. The slight breeze made me freeze like a popsicle but my best friend said that I overreacted. I was so cold.
My friend and her dad looked at the map of the park. Next, we went to a playground. It had slides, a cool tire ride and lots of places to climb in. She went down slides that were enclosed. I refused to do anything. There were these tunnels made from net, except they had huge holes. They also had a ramp and your only way to get up was to climb it. My friend kept falling. Eventually, she decided to take the ladder. They also had a smaller playground closer to the entrance.
Before going to the smaller playground, we went to the Winter Gardens. The gardens were in a greenhouse that was huge. I saw some plants that I see at home. There were cacti that were super spikey. I also saw a coffee bean tree. It was nice and warm in there. The small playground had a boat. There was one ride that was like a tilted bowl that had places for your fingers. My friend got into it; but, her dad spun it so fast. It was constantly going up and down. The park was great. I loved it. I hope you can go too! I am so excited to come back.
Until the next post.
