Enjoy a walk or cycle through this riverside park in London. There's a cycle trail running through the northern end of the park and footpaths taking you around a boating lake, through Sub-Tropical Gardens and along the River Thames. There's 200acres (83-hectare)to explore with a children's zoo, a boating lake, a bandstand and cafe. There's also a 3 hectare nature area with mixed woodland where you can look out for butterflies and birds such asblackcap and bullfinch.Good footpaths take you around the lovely Sub-Tropical Gardens with amixture of exotic plants and then to the Old English Garden with a fountain and pretty hedges and flowers.
The whole of this circular route is designed for walkers but there is a traffic free cycle track running through the northern end of the park. You can then cross Chelsea Bridge and continue along the Thames to Battersea Bridge. The Thames Path runs through the park so you can extend your walk by continuing along the thames.
