Park Project: Regent’s Park

Regent’s Park is up there as one of my favourite parks, it’s rather large – 395 acres in fact, and has quite a lot of variety. London Zoo is situated at a top corner of the park, and Primrose Hill further still, with amazing views over the city

There is the Avenue Gardens, a structured garden with fountains and and spring bulbs, tulips hyacinths and daffodils, and surrounded by blossoming trees. Alongside runs the English Garden which is more of a grassy meadow with squirrels and picnic spots, which on a sunny spring day is absolute heaven.

Further along, you get to Queen Mary’s rose garden, I am really looking forward to visiting once the roses bloom – there are over 1200 individual roses planted in a circular garden, giving it a distinctly secret garden feel.

Another of my favourite parts of the park in the waterfowl pond, with a large number of exotic ducks and geese from all over the world.
