Little Wormwood Scrubs

The best thing about London, hands down, is the amount of greenery that’s in the city! Sure, it’s a huge place. But you can bet there is nature right around the corner. About a 15 minute walk from our current location is a park called Little Wormwood Scrubs.

Look, ma! Just 15 minutes away!

In London’s Zone 2, Max and I went on a nature walk and picked blackberries!

We picked blackberries, climbed on logs, and walked through knee-deep grass… all around the corner from a densely residential area and a great Irish butcher. I suppose it’s similar to something like Blue Hills… but that’s not in downtown Boston, and this isn’t quite as big. The point is more that nature is everywhere, especially in the neighborhood we’re currently located. Though we’ll be moving out for a few weeks, we think our ultimate goal is to land back here.

Of course, there is a prison right nearby [regular] Wormwood Scrubs, and train tracks as well… but let’s assume the inmates are nice and secure.

HMP Wormwood Scrubs is the prison. Perhaps they have good views of the park as well.

Max and T are lucky to be able to enjoy summer days at parks like these, prison or no!

    Welcome to London! I realize I’m a bit late in the greeting. However, I’ve finally registered to follow your blog and read the adventurous news. You are correct about the real life abroad. Ask Keith & Kevin who played pro volleyball for several years. I loved visiting them wherever they lived. I hope your job is going well. Love to all.
