“Favourite london park”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

This park is situated along the river and is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect for picnics or walking/jogging/cycling. The park has plenty of open space for all activities plus plenty of beautiful trees, gardens, lakes and playgrounds. Big enough to escape to nature without having to go too far from the city. I was also lucky enough to see it when covered in snow....magical! Not full of tourists, lots of locals going about their exercise or just relaxing.

Thank Mellissa S

“An unexpected pleasure ...”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Battersea Park is, to our minds, one of the most beautiful parks in London, and at the same time one of the least known. It's very much a Londoners' park - very few tourists, but lots of walkers, joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and pushers of prams. It's a big park - probably at least a kilometre of frontage along the south bank of the Thames - but it has great diversity - a children's zoo, a Peace Pagoda, a vast lake alive with ducks and moorhens, an outdoor tropical garden, a fountain square, and (our favourite) a well-concealed English garden which recalls the Kipling gardens in Rottingdene, East Sussex. Just across the Thames from Chelsea. An unexpected pleasure ...

“Lovely park in the middle of London”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We were staying just across the river for our wedding anniversary and had been told what the park was like so we went over there one afternoon.
It's a lovely place to go and you can really get away from it all by finding your own little spot.
Lots of variety and great way to relax and waste away an hour or two.
We liked it so much we went back the following day, armed with a picnic and some wine.

“fun thing with kids”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

We go to Battersea park quite often when we see our grandparents and we always take a walk in the park and meet new friends. If you dont like slides and swings then just go for the peddle bikes to ride around and just take in pretty views. You can see the battersea power station. If it is a lovely summers day then you can go to the ice cream van.
