Urban Oases: War Memorial Park, Coventry

leave a comment »

A much-visited expanse of green just outside the city centre, this is where Coventry’s annual Godiva festival takes place. Any city worth its salt can offer wide-open grassy areas, but for somewhere a bit more private and contemplative, a secluded rockery can be found tucked just off the path near the main entrance; a circle of lichen-speckled boulders in a leafy copse, which makes for a pleasant, unusual place to sit and eat your lunch.
