To many wasps buzzing around bins . You just can't sit outside the cafes. Diana memorial , I don't think she would be much impressed by this , it doesn't reflect the beautiful person she was . A garden of beautiful flowers and bushes with a seating area and a fountain would be more appropriate. Sometimes people who think they know what is a good idea , haven't got an idea!!.

I landed here on a cool spring wednesday evening with a friend for a stroll. You would see people of all ages taking a jog,sitting and having a chat with friends or just laying on the cool green grass all alone and listening to some music on the ear phones.The weather starts getting more and more chilly with every passing minute.But this is a perfect place to chill after a stressful day at work.

Is beautiful place. Be aware the park is very big even is twice smaller then New York’s Central Park, but you can spend hours in summer time or autum. Lot lot of beautiful flowers, birds I would advice to be careful with ducks and swans, animals, few big ponds, can spend hours and hours by exploring or have a picnic, have a drink or ice cream as few cafes around, boat renting which we enjoyed a lot . Is nice day to spend with company or to read a book.
