Walk through the park at almost any time of year and it will be different than the last time you went. Both the heath (the un-manicured part of the park) and the manicured gardens will blow you away. There is a Japanese garden and a Rose garden. There are also numerous sculptures that you will find interesting. After your walk get a cup of expresso at the cafeteria, take in a posh meal at Belvedere(reservations required), or see a concert. The simplest pleasure is just sitting on the grass and watching the other people play and relax.
My wife and I were frequent visitors to the park. We started going in March, when the flowers and trees were first blooming. The Heath was continually changing through the Spring and Summer, with different flowers at different times of the year. There are two restaurants in the park. The first is a cefeteria where you can get simple meals, a soft drink, or a coffee. You can sit outside and relax as you take in the sights of the Park. The second is Belvedere, an excellent fine dining establishment. Almost all the tables have pleasant views of the park and the food is traditional and excellent. If you reserve months ahead, you possibly could get a table for Sunday brunch.
