There is a BRAND NEW playground in Essex! Brain Valley Park

There's a BRAND NEW playground on the block...

We spent a good hour here over the weekend and both children really loved it. This playground isn't suitable for a whole day out but I definitely recommend a visit if you're local or passing through. The playground is only few minutes drive from Braintree Freeport Designer Village, so a good spot to wear the kids out before hitting the shops.
