Ravenscourt Park Secret Garden
Nestled away in the north-east corner of Ravenscourt Park sits a secluded walled garden. It’s Zen-like charm gives the feeling of tranquility and the ability to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Ravenscourt Park, while larger than your average private acreage, it has a refreshing local feel and is suitably off the beaten track. No matter if it’s Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the park is blissfully calm. With larger parks, Hyde and Holland being used by most tourist, Ravenscourt Park allows locals the chance to relax and read a book, enjoy the fresh air or spend outdoor time with friends and family.
If relaxing in the serenity of the peaceful park is not your cup of tea, then there are passable tennis courts, a bowling lawn and a putting green. Kids are well catered for with a nature trail and four play areas which feature a paddling pool, a rope and post fitness circuit and an adventure playground with fort-style climbing frames, slides and a popular basket swing (adults are often seen commandeering the seriously fun rope slide).
And don’t forget the annual Bonfire night fireworks that will be taking place this year 7 November Gates open 6pm (Entry gates closes at 8pm) Children’s fireworks 7:15pm with the main display starting at 8:10pm.
