I’ve grown up on this park (Portland Park). I’ve been there so many times. But there’s places here I haven’t even seen before, adn it makes you think what else you’ve missed. There’s loads of history behind it – you wouldn’t think when you see it. You’d think it’s just a park. We did more research – just looking online and found out about the magnesium limestone that runs through the park. It’s made of sea creatures and corals from more than 200 million years ago. Once the light gets better we’re going to take some close up pictures and put them on the blog. The area is full of birds. We’ll take some sound recordings around the stone. The land has changed so much since then. And it’s unbelievable how much it’s progressed. It makes me wonder what else could be there.
