I grew up in nearby Blurton as a child and Longton Park was somewhere we visited at least twice a week and more during school holidays. I still visit now with my own children and they absolutely love it. They always take a bag of monkey nuts and the grey squirrels come and take the nuts out of their hands much to the children's delight. I wander round looking where everything used to be the old playgrounds, the monkey house as we called it, the boatyard, the old cafe etc. etc. It's changed over the years like most places do but for me it has never lost it's charm or appeal and I'm as happy today as I was as a child to visit Longton Park. I hope my children carry on the tradition as it is a place where I can go to get away from the stresses of life being self employed I can relax and clear my head whilst taking it it's natural beauty. I still know where every conker tree (horse chestnut) is in the park as we used to raid them as kids. Love this place and will never tire of visiting it. Just wish though that some people would pick up their dogs mess after them!
