The Best of London Parks: And Small Green Spaces

by SimonRead (Author)


LONDON IS ONE OF THE GREENEST CITIES IN THE WORLD with thousands of acres of parks. There is a wealth of inexpensive, top quality facilities in the Parks that are often not known about even by the people who live near to them. These include numerous sports such as tennis, rugby, football, golf and bowls. There are gyms and athletics tracks, free playgrounds and paddling pools for children and clubs for their parents to meet and relax together. ALL THE PARKS of central London are covered. For each of these famous parks, there is a chapter detailing their history and all they have to offer. The chapters have something for ALL interests from the price of bacon butties, to rare goats (with frost-proof ears), to tennis courts, to boating. The information includes a brief historical background, how to get to the park, the opening times of all facilities and costs. Each park has a list of highlights and nearby places of interest and the larger parks include a map.
