Green Park is one of eight great Royal parks in the city of London and is, in fact, the smallest of them. Having its own underground station, where the Piccadilly, Jubilee and Victoria Lines meet, Green Park is easily accessible and provides millions of Londoners and tourists with much needed fresh air, relaxation and a place to get away from the crowds.
Green Park stretches for just over 40 acres across a terrain right next to Buckingham Palace and is more or less triangular in shape. Unlike St James’ Park, which is just opposite towards the east, or Buckingham Palace Gardens to the south-west, Green Park does not have a boating lake, a popular feature dating back to the days when Victorian and Edwardian beaux liked to show off their punting and rowing skills to impress the ladies they were wooing.
Since Green Park borders on Constitution Hill and the Horse Ride, where the Queen’s various horse-ridden guards like to exercise their mounts, park visitors are more than likely to catch a glimpse of modern-day courtiers. Constitution Hill dates back to the reign of King Charles II and he is said to have enjoyed a stroll in the park with his spaniels in the 17th century.
