This is Hyde Park, with some 350 acres of green space. It's a great escape from inner city life, and has quite a history. It was acquired by Henry VIII in the 16th century, and for a while served as a private hunting ground. Since then, it's been the site of many national celebrations, horse racing and dueling too. I couldn't find any duels on my visit though. And I was looking for one too ;-)

Nowadays, it's a place for some quiet famly time, maybe a picnic or to play a game or two. It also hosts fairs and other special events.

Admission is free. Make a trip to Hyde Park, and just relax for a while.
