Avenue Gardens in The Regents Park - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
At the time this panorama was taken there were huge iron sculptures scattered though out the Avenue Gardens in Regents Park. These formal gardens are very well kept. In the summer months the grass quickly fills up with people from the surrounding offices during the lunchtime.

Regents Park (officially called The Regents Park) in London covers 487 acres of land some of which is used for sports, and other parts for formal plantings, like The Avenue Gardens. The Regents Park is the northernmost Royal Park in London and is very popular throughout the year with both visitors and Londoners alike. The north end borders on London Zoo and Primrose Hill. It contains a Boating Lake, open air theater and famous Rose Gardens in Queen Mary Gardens. Like all the London Parks, it is open from sunrise to sunset and is free. Some of the sports areas may be rented.
The Avenue Gardens in Regents Park, as seen in this panoramic image, is found in the south east area. This formal garden is supposed to be both ball and dog free, but don't take that for granted. William A. Nesfield, the original landscaper for Regents Park, created the original layout of Avenue Gardens in the 19C. The area has recently been restored.
The Avenue Gardens are separated from the rest of Regents Park by gates and fencing. It contains many unusual trees and shrubs and the area is constantly replanted throughout the year. There are a number of high planters and fountains. In the early spring the whole area is filled with cherry blossom and daffodils. In one corner is a dedicated bog garden.
The Broad Walk passes through Avenue Gardens and then continues on through Regents Park ending up near to London Zoo (entrance to London Zoo is free with the London Pass).
