Kenwood Park

The house was remodelled by Robert Adam and provided with a suitable landscape setting consisting of a grassed slope down to a lake and contrived bridge. More recently, in its capacity as a GLC park, a concert bowl and various fences were added. The remainder of the grounds consist of woodland and a vast rhododendron collection. Hampstead Heath, beyond the lake, is interesting for its views over London and the unobtrusive management of a large semi-wild area subjected to heavy wear and tear by visitors from all over North London. Hampstead Lane, N6.
