The aptly named Green Park is one of London’s eight royal parks. The smallest and most modest of the collection, the park is peaceful Green Park is peaceful with many trees and trails but no buildings. There are only a handful of monuments, including the Canada Memorial, which honors Canadians who lost their lives during both world wars. There is a walkway that represents Britain and Canada’s joint participation in the wars.
The 47-acre area is located in Westminster, situated between the nearby Hyde and St James parks, and it is not uncommon to see picnickers, joggers and dogs enjoying the park as they please, especially during the summer months.
The park is open all day, year-round, and deck chairs are available for rental from March to October. The closest underground stations include the Green Park and Hyde Park Corner stations, and it is also served by multiple bus lines. It’s easy to combine a stroll through Green Park with a visit to nearby Buckingham Palace.
