“Great park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Paved trails weave through vast open greens, stunning rose gardens, open air theatres, boating lakes, and even a zoo. And with all of the football, rugby and frisbee that is being played, inspiration is readily available.

I'm not quite sure how a park can make running romantic, but this is certainly the case at Regent's Park. I most enjoy coming in the early mornings when I feel I'm a part of a secret runners society -- puffs of breath can be seen beckoning each fellow runner's anticipated step, and it seems that the park was built just for us.

Perfect for a 6 or 8k jog, there is something amusing to stare at around every turn which makes the time fly. Just be aware of this running euphoria or before you know it, it will backfire with a nasty stress fracture from all that pavement pounding. Nothing romantic about that, now is there?

“A park which can surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Regents Park sits between the Euston Road and the Regents canal. At the north of the park is London Zoo. It is also the location of one of the largest Mosques in London. With several lakes and the usual swans, ducks, moorhens and coots, it is great place for families to picnic or play games, particularly of spring and summer weekends.

“Outdoor Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

See a play in the open air theatre in the park and book a barbecue with your ticket or have a picnic on the lawns nearby. Look out for Jazz concerts at th bandstand near the boating lake, the Zoo and ducks in the pond. Something for everyone in deklightful surroundings.
