I don’t live particularly close to Hyde Park, and I think I’ve only been up there once or twice, but I think this Guardian article about plans to rewild the park is worth flagging up. Part of a project to rejuvenate London’s green spaces, the plans involve “more wild spaces, more scrub, river rewiggling and species reintroductions”. One of the things I adore most about London is it’s parks. I love how, when out on my daily trundles, every so often I come across an area of grass or an ancient-feeling wood; tranquil little areas away from the traffic which not many cities the size of London have. It’s good to see that, amid all the construction currently happening in the metropolis, effort is being made to preserve it’s quieter, greener spaces too.
