Holland Park is a beautiful little hidden gem of a park in Notting Hill. It is only really known to the local residents, and what a gem it is. Situated just off Holland park road and leading on to Kensington High Street this park is great. It has a giant chess board, a rose garden, floral square, peacocks wondering around, an open air opera house, a café, a Marco Pierre White restaurant, a huge gated playing field, a kids adventure playground and lots, lots more. Unlike other parks, where they have chopped down nearly all the trees and made it flat with grass, Holland Park has broken the rules there are lots of untouched areas designed to give you a real ‘woodland in the city’ feel. There are lots of hidden little gardens in this park, it’s like going into a huge mansion with loads of different rooms and each room has a theme.
It is one of my favourite parks to visit and it is close to my home which is a bonus. There are lots of benches dotted around the park where you can relax and chill, I could easily spend the whole day here. Families regularly set up parties and have family get togethers here – there’s always a photo shoot going!
The park has toilets and wheelchair accessible toilets and the park is fully accessible.
Holland Park is certainly worth a visit.
