  • Beautiful park. It has gardens on one end of it, and open grounds on the other. It feels like you are in a forest, far away from London. Usually not as crowded as some of the other parks.
  • My favourite London park. It might not have the roaming deer or the sweeping views of Richmond Park, but it had a more natural, wilder feel about it. Wonderful place to walk around on a sunny day or a crisp winter day.
  • Great Park for relaxing in the london summer sunshine. Also good place for Hill running or cross country training. Very large Park, so lots of space. It has a couple of gender specific ponds (reason unknown to me). The male pond has a diving board and looks like a lot of fun!
  • Hampstead Heath is one of my favourite places in London. Hampstead Heath is huge and it offers something for everyone - joggers, kids, dogs, couples and families. The park is quite big and I find a new patch of the park every time I go there. The heath has bathing ponds for both men and women. Hampstead Heath is popular and gets crowded on warm sunny days.
  • beautiful parklands good for relaxing or walks and runs. plenty of people bring their dogs here too. you get nice views of the city when you get up the top of hills. there's also plenty of nice restaurants and shops surrounding the area.
