Regent’s Park

Spread across 410 acres, Regent’s Park is one of London’s largest and most beautiful public parks.

Known for its flower gardens, the park contains over 300,000 roses of 400 different varieties.  Queen Mary’s Garden, situated in the south center of Regent’s park and named after King George V’s wife, features 9,000 begonias as well as a “national collection of delphiniums.”  There are 5 designated garden areas within the park.

Other features of Regent’s include a large outdoor theatre, a community gym/sports arena, multiple cafes, a tennis center, a boating lake, and several playgrounds.  Also, located on the northern end, is London’s zoo, containing over 650 animal species.

One of London’s finest places to both relax and get a little exercise while enjoying some fresh air.

    It’s such a lovely oasis. And not too hot to enjoy it, I bet. (Greetings from 100-degree Virginia.)

    When I was in London, I walked through Regent’s Park every day to get to wherever it was I was going. Always something new to discover in the park!

    I love the pic with the fountain, how it has the droplets of water.
