Richmond Park is the largest open space in London. Only ten miles from central London, it is one of the city's most popular and treasured Royal parks. It has 23 ponds, acres of grassland, thousands of trees and expanses of bog and bracken-covered ground, providing habitats for thousands of species of plant and animal life. Joanna Jackson's book gives us an insight into a year at Richmond Park. She covers every aspect of the park's life, from animals to trees, from history to its appearances in literature.
