Holland Park is one of my favourite green spaces where I head to escape the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. It may not be as well known or as large as it’s counterparts but is quieter and also cleaner. There are plenty of walking paths, however, to get the best experience I’d advise getting off the beaten path. If you do, make sure you wear appropriate footwear as it can get slightly muddy. The park is full of lush greenery, flowers and is home to Kyoto Gardens. A Japanese style garden where you’ll find peacocks and a pond filled with colourful koi carp. If that isn’t your thing then worry not, there are plenty of open spaces with fields for football, tennis and more.
