I love this park because of many things, firstly it's location, it's located right in the heart of London, a 5 minute stroll from Oxford st. This makes it ideal for a quick getaway from the city. Secondly, its hardly ever crowded, sure there's many people so it doesn't feel lonely, but more importantly you're free to your own space which is a nice change from the tube. Thirdly, there's always something going on. Because it is so close to the center it is a top contender for events such as the British Summer Time Festival and Winter Wonderland. It's always nice to find something unexpected going on. And lastly, it is very well maintained which is very different from Hampstead Heath for example, which is still beautiful but a lot more wild.
Every time I went London I always ended up with taking a stroll around Hyde Park. I could be because it is so central. Whenever you need a rest from the traffic and the noise, just a short stroll into the park, and you feel that you are a million miles away from London.
Hyde Park is great, but it lacks one feature near the Serpentine which is a bandstand. It would be great to have live ensembles performing in the park on a regular basis. My band was sponsored to perform on the bandstand at Finsbury Sq in the City of London and the crowds gathered during their lunch period and enjoyed it. The same can be done in Hyde Park if someone takes the initiative and arranges it. What type of music would you like to hear during your lunch period if you went to the park?

Came for a day trip to London last year, the most relaxing and enjoyable part was the stroll around Hyde Park. We sat and had a picnic by the lake then fed the ducks. We also had a stroll around Diana's memorial fountain...Beautiful :-) Putting it simple, Strolling around Hyde Park is a must do for anybody visiting London!!
