Despite the flooding the park cafe remains open – and has great views of the flood water! The pumps have started, but it will take two weeks to clear the waters and ready the park for re-opening. Meanwhile, why not go along and try the great coffee and delicious cakes; perhaps we should suggest they start offering Floodwater soup (presumably brown – mushroom?) and Ouse Mud Pie (doesn’t have the romantic ring of a Mississippi Mud Pie, but would taste just as nice!) Access, not surprisingly, is only via Richardson St.
