Why I love Hyde Park

Updated: Aug 31, 2017

One of the things I love the most about London is the Hyde Park. I go there several times a week and it's the best place for a stroll, clearing your head and to find inspiration (or to just watch cute dogs I wish were mine!). Here's the little waterfall near Hyde Park Corner.

I almost prefer the park when it's a cloudy day in the middle of the week. It gives a certain calm to the park and it becomes less hectic.

I'm not a huge fan of the passive-aggressive ducks that often compete with us humans about the space near the Serpentine. To me, it's a great mystery how some people are totally cool about playing around with the giant swans (even scarier when they have ducklings to protect). You'll find me hiding safely in the bushes.

These private cottages resemble gingerbread houses, don't they?

I like the norhtern part of the park where the grass looks more like a big meadow.

I love the red brick building that is The Old Police House. The purple flowers on the front yard aren't that bad either.

The Bronze Oak Grove art installation. All the trunks have the same size and shape and are 3D-printed, based on botanical drawings from the 17th century.
