  • One of my favourite places in London. It has so much going on for it, beautiful upkeep, available swimming areas with lifeguards, and a feeling of being close to nature.
  • A beautiful place for family picnics. Dogs can have non restricted play space. You can go swimming if you remembered to go with your swim suit. You get closer to nature with fresh air. Lots to see. Endlessly walking distances.
