Regent's Park is one of the royal parks, located in North-West London. Architect John Nash designed the park in 1811. It has many elegant gardens, as well as playgrounds and London's most extensive sports area.
An example of one of the gardens in the park is rose garden inside Queen Mary's Garden, which has London's most extensive collection of roses. There are roughly 12000 roses planted in the area. The Avenue Gardens has showy flowerbeds as well as decorated fountains. Allotment Garden is where you can see examples of how food is grown.
The park itself also has a boating lake, where you can hire paddle boats (pedalos) or rowboats. Boat hire is £30 an hour for a family (2 adults and max 3 children). If you want to see the area around central London, you should visit Primrose Hill, which is located on the north side of the park.
There are also numerous events at Regent's Park, the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre with many shows (May-September) and food festivals (Taste of London) in June.
You may also rent deck chairs at the park between March and October if the weather allows it. The chairs are £1.80 for the first hour and £9 for the whole day.
The nearest underground stations are Regent's Park Station and Baker Street, which are on the Southern side of the park.
The London Zoo is inside the Regent's Park area.
