It's full of lots of various birds,cute squirrels, nice lake with a little bridge. It's not a huge park, but compact one, and although it is centrally located it can be peaceful at times with not too many people in it. It doesn't have the huge grassy spaces of Hyde Park and Green Park and it's so nice for walking... More

What a beautiful park in an optimum London location. Walking through it it's hard to believe that you're in the centre of a city. It was chilly when I walked through here so a brisk pace was needed, but in the summer it's a great place to stroll, sit and have a takeaway lunch.

Walked through on the way to watch the changing of the guard and enjoyed handing peanuts to the squirrels and watching all of the different birds that inhabit the area. Of course it is winter so I am sure it is much nicer in the summer when everything is lush and green.

Great place to visit. Surrounded by many tourist attractions. The park is full of lovely cute squirrels, ducks, swans and even saw a happy fox. The locals even commented that they had not seen that before. The kids took a lot of photos of the squirrels running up and down the trees and across the grass.

I love parks, and this one is packed with animals running around. The squirrels are so used to people feeding them that you just need to crouch reach out and they'll come to you. Careful they bite. Loved it!

Great wild life - numerous squirrels that ate food from your hand. We walked quite easily from the Horse Guards Museum across the parade ground, through the park to Buckingham Palace then along The Mall to Nelson's Column and back to the river taxi at Westminster Pier.

Every visit to this place seems like a holiday. An oasis of charm amid the cacophony of the capital.

We sat in the park to have our sandwich and watch the world go by.As we did a cheeky squirrel jumped on my knee for a bite to eat. We also saw parrots in the trees! !
