Hyde Park, London
Sitting on 142 hectares (350 acres) in central London, Hyde Park is one of the city's largest and most attraction-rich green spaces. You'll find plenty of ways to enjoy yourself here no matter the season. Navigate the Serpentine lake by rowboat or pedal boat, or take a swim if you visit between June and September. Stop by the Diana Memorial, a fountain made of Cornish granite with water flowing down an embankment in two directions to meet in a pool at the bottom. Walk around Speakers' Corner, where luminaries such as Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and George Orwell have given speeches, and many protests and demonstrations have taken place. Butterflies fly around in the summer and wildfowl visit in winter, and you can ride horses along two designated routes. If you plan to be in London during the first half of July, find out who's performing in the park's summer concert series. Tickets are usually in high demand, so you'll want to find out when they go on sale for any concerts you want to attend.

A beautiful and well maintained Royal Park. Great place to relax with family and friends. Easy approach, good facilities, rest room and restaurant. The lake inside the park has lots of birds. A good place to relax and watch them. The park is disabled and wheelchair friendly. Access to public transport is easy.
Beautiful open space, you could forget you were in the hustle and bustle of London. Wild parakeets flying about were amazing (I thought they were an urban legend but nope they are real!).
