"Haven for Waterbirds and People"

London has a marvellous selection of parks ranging from the likes of the hugely popular and internationally famous Hyde Park,nearby Kensington Gardens,serene Green Park, St James's Park,the oldest in London, liitle parks in various parts of Central London, Richmond park,Syon Park, and the lovely Regents Park.This wide expanse of parkland and gardens is quite remarkable for such a major urban area. It is ever so easy to forget that you are in the middle of a bustling city when you are at a place like Regents Park,which was once part of King HenryVIII's hunting forest in the 16 th century.

Regents Park is centrally located in a very attractive part of Central London and is close to a variety of other world class attractions such as London Zoo, Madame Tussauds,the Planetarium, and the Sherlock Holmes Museum. The nearest underground station to the park is Baker Street and plenty of buses ply the route from the West End.

There is actually a lot to see and do in this gorgeous,verdant,expanse. You can walk,jog,run,take your dog for a walk, eat your sandwiches,have an afternoon picnic, have a cup of cappucinno in one of the cafes and restaurants, gaze at the flowers, listen to music at the bandstand, feed the ducks and admire all the other waterbirds on the pond.

You can also watch outdoor performances,go boating,hire a cycle,play soccer, and take your kids to the children's playground. The Queen Mary Rose Garden attracts a lot of visitors who ooh and ah as they gaze at all the wonderful flowers. There is the Heron Island and its no wonder that bird watchers just love Regents Park.

You can rent a boat or a bicycle and whether it is active or passive recreation you are after, this lovely ,beautifully maintained green oasis can accommodate your needs. There is really something for everyone at Regents Park,so it is not surprising it is so popular with resident Londoners,provincial visitors to the capital and foreign tourists. It is virtually impossible on a warm sunny day not to like andthoroughly enjoy a visit to Regents Park.
