Finally back home and for todays run I decided to run over to Nowton park and do a circuit.

On a lovely warm day I headed out via Cullum Road.

Looking at Nowton Park is 2.5 miles from home. I am not entirely sure of the distance around the park .

I follow the route markers generally around the perimeter. However the park ranger appears to have changed the markers sometime ago and the route seems to take a shorter path in places. I tend to stick to a longer route through tree cover in some areas going "off piste".

I am sure I read some where the official distance around the marked path I would guess that it is around 2.25 miles but may be shorter anyone know?

Up by the Arboretum there is a huge range of different trees and in the Chinese section a carved Panda which has had a home here since 1998.

I ran a slow time recording 20.06 for the lap around Nowton park. I will have to dig out some of my old times for this which I am sure are a few minutes better than this.
