Regent's Park, London

Actual date of this event: 4 August

London has so many different parks and they all specialize in something different. Luke had heard that Regent's Park was one of the most stunning due to its gorgeous flower gardens. Before the season changes and ruins the gardens, we jumped at the chance to see what this park offers. If you enjoy flowers, this is the park for you! If you are like me and aren't a big flower person, even you will be impressed with its beauty.

I took a different route with my pictures in this post by creating a slideshow :-)
The slideshow is about 4.5 minutes long just to warn you. Hope you like Passion Pit!
If you would rather no music, you will have to turn your sound off. Sorry!

Regent's Park is one of eight Royal Parks in London (originally owned by the Monarchy).
There is an outer circle and an inner circle which surrounds Queen Mary's Garden (the most carefully tended garden).
The London Zoo (opened in 1828 making it the oldest scientific zoo in the world) is located within Regent's Park.
Primrose Hill is just north of Regent's Park which gives great views of the city. It has been mentioned in some literature and musical pieces such as a Red Hot Chili Peppers' song.
