St James’s Park St James’s park is at the very heart of London, covering 23 hectares (58 acres) and has a lake harbouring ducks, geese and pelicans. St James’s is also home to the Mall, the setting for many ceremonial parades and events of national celebration.
The Green Park The Green Park is a peaceful refuge for people living, working or visiting central London, and is particularly popular for sunbathing and picnics in fine weather. It is also popular as a healthy walking route to work for commuters.
The Regent’s Park

Set on the side of a hill overlooking the River Thames, Greenwich Park is a great mix of green space, gardens and historical features.
