These are: Bushy Park, Green Park, Greenwich Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Regent’s Park, Richmond Park, St. James’s Park. Brompton Cemetery, although not a park, is another of the green spaces managed by Royal Parks. Some of the parks are preserved as freely accessible open space. They are renowned for their beautiful scenery with trees, lakes, grasslands, meadows, hills, etc. Each park has distinct features: horse rides and boating at Hyde Park; deer and wildlife watching at Richmond Park and Greenwich Park; stunning rose gardens in Regent’s Park. Events are held regularly throughout the year, such as open air plays, winter ice-rinks, guided walks, ceremonial parades and many others.
