This verdant, sprawling park to the northwest of the city center offers an ideal way to get out of town without getting out of town. If you’re feeling sporty, come for a run; if you’d prefer more leisured pursuits, go boating or spread out on the grassy lawn with a picnic.

Yourself; significant other; as many people as you can get together
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s tranquil, it’s beautiful, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Perhaps a few more lavatories? Otherwise, nothing.
GOOD TO KNOW
There is boating on the main lake. Road cycling for the London 2012 Olympics will take place here. A bit of trivia: this used to be Henry VIII’s hunting grounds.
