This was huge! Lots of young families strolling around. There's a huge pond where swans, geese and many varieties of ducks were enjoying mingling with guests. Paved sidewalks for easy access.

Kensington Gardens are a very nice extension of Hyde Park. It is on higher grounds and seems to be getting more sun. Victoria's monument and the Kensington palace make Kensington Gardens even more riyal.
