    The Plantation is a park within a park. Hidden away in the middle of Richmond Park are 42 acres of clearings, ponds and streams and a large collection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

    The best time to visit is early May when all the Rhododendrons and Azaleas are in full bloom. On a sunny day the reflections in the ponds are impressive.

    The streams running through the Plantation are planted up with wetland species such as candelabra Primulas and ferns.
