Entering May and the spring season, London has finally been experiencing some warm weather. For the past couple weeks the sun has been out and shining bright for all the city slickers of London to enjoy. A favorite activity among most Londoners is heading to the beautiful parks of the city. Within minutes of the sun appearing in the sky, the parks are flooded with families, students, pets and people of every kind. You might choose to bring a lunch and snack in the park as my friends and I do, or you might choose to sit in one of the park chairs; but beware as some do not know that it costs several pounds to sit in the lawn chairs until they find the park police making their hourly rounds.
London is home to some of the most beautiful parks filled with flowers, trees and ponds. Swimming around the ponds are numerous geese, ducks and birds of different kinds. You will see people feeding the animals by sprinkling bread crumbs into the water.
Another activity that many people do at the park is rent either paddle-boats or rowboats on 30 minute or hourly pay basis. It is quite pricey (7 – 10 pounds per adult per hour) but it is a fun activity to do with a group of people because up to about 5 or 6 people can fit on one boat!
I would highly recommend having a picnic in one of the parks. Pack a lunch, bring some music to listen to and relax in the sun, there’s nothing better!
