Disappointingly there was no Lady Isabella Gardner who started planting exotic flowers here on her return from even more exotic locations. The name Isabel simply means grey, yellow soil of this enclosed area because this is how this boggy, soggy area looked like few centuries ago. But now it's definitely a Bella as Italian would say. This little park within a park has a biodiversity of mini botanical garden. Other than the local trademark ancient oak trees, bluebell, daffodils flowers, there are chestnut, strawberry trees, fungi, many species of butterflies 🦋 moths and other little animals that come out only at night. And with a free entry for everyone, this is as good as it can get.

The Plantation is a complete contrast to the rest of Richmond Park where the deer roam freely, having been established as a woodland area, fenced off to keep the deer out, in the early 19th century, with an interconnecting series of pounds and streams. It is also a pleasure to be away from the dog walkers and the cyclists which seem to have taken over the park - the cyclists in particular, with so many of them on a busy afternoon and many going at a speed that makes crossing the road difficult at times. It was thoroughly enjoyable to explore the different habitats and ponds, following the streams that connect them. We parked at the adjacent car park which had spaces, unlike the one at the park's main Richmond entrance, though there was an inevitable queue for drinks and snacks. The Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park is full of rhododendrons which must be a riot of colour in the spring, when I shall return, but perhaps during the week when it will be quieter. There were however some brilliant autumn colours to be seen throughout the Plantation even now.

azaleas are stunning in late spring but beautiful at any time of the year. Highly recommended along with the rest of Richmond Park.

Visited Isabella plantation in September. It’s a long thirty minute walk from the bus stop. Not very well sign posted so we used google maps to get around the park.Nice trees and greenery in the park however this time of the year not many flowers.Busy garden with many visitors. There are public toilets in the garden and lots of seating areas. Perhaps we will visit the garden earlier in the year when the flowers has blossomed.

What a beautiful and peaceful place. Paradise on earth, particularly in early May when it's looking its very best. If you happen to be going in the summer months it can get a bit busy in the middle of the day so consider going early or late on.
