One thing that surprises many visitors to London is the abundance of open nike air presto ultra flyknit uk , green spaces. Whether it’s the sights afforded by climbing Primrose Hill or just taking a gentle stroll through Regent’s Park, London’s greenspace is second to none.

Perhaps the most popular natural area in London is the Battersea Park. This park has a large lake with a wide range of wildlife meaning you have more to do than just walk, relax and have space to throw a Frisbee around. Gondola Al Parco Cafe is a popular spot in Battersea Park, offering many events with music and dance taking a priority. Another highlight is the amazing children’s playground. There’s a lunchtime club aimed specifically at under-fives while the adventure playground is open throughout the day. There are is also the opportunity to hire a boat and row across the lake.

For the keen observer nike cortez classic nylon premium uk , not only will they see rowers on the lake but also many other fitness fanatics. From the perfunctory joggers to the sports teams playing and practising rugby, football and cricket, Battersea Park is home to many fitness and sports fans.

Battersea Park is also a great place to go and relax, especially in the warmer months. Wildlife lovers will appreciate the chance to see small nike cortez classic sp uk , cute animals such as hedgehogs and squirrels while the park and its arboretum is also a spotting ground for many birds that might not be seen in many other places in London, such as Peregrine falcons, kestrels and parakeets. These birds find sanctuary in the park’s wide range of trees and foliage, with estimates of there being more than 4000 trees in this park some of which are more than 200 years old. The different kinds of trees are tagged to allow visitors to learn about each type while walking round the park nike cortez classic nylon uk , a trip that will take a casual observer roughly an hour. Another thing to keep an eye out for is the sculptures of the likes of Hepworth, Kennington and Moore that are dotted around the area.

Many inhabitants of London feel lucky to have a garden of their own and a lot of those who do will have to share a tiny bit of lawn with other flats in their block. Because of this, places such as Battersea Park offer locals an opportunity to laze in the sun, to play sport and to do many other things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do in London. Many a Battersea estate agent tells of the demand for flats within walking distance of the park and across the capital letting agents tell of the same demand for a nearby green space.
