The Regent’s Park covers an area of 395 acres and combines large open spaces with grand tree lined walkways, public gardens, and 4 children’s playgrounds. Many beautiful plants and flower beds provide stunning displays especially in the Spring and Summer and also provides the perfect setting for many wildlife, including a large wetland area which is home to around 100 species of wild birds and a population of hedgehogs.
