Sprinkled with sculptures by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, these 50 hectares of gorgeous greenery stretch between Albert and Chelsea Bridges. To the north, the Peace Pagoda , erected in 1985 by a group of Japanese Buddhists to commemorate Hiroshima Day, displays the Buddha in the four stages of his life. There are lakes and plenty of sporting facilities – rent bicycles and other pedal conveyances from London Recumbents .

There's also an art space called the Pump House Gallery and a small Children’s Zoo .
