Autumn is a good time for weekend walks due to the changes of the nature that occur just before the winter. The temperature is not that cold yet and the trees turn into a picturesque sight with many colours in the park. There are a few parks in Europe that are house to not only beautiful flora but also fauna with a variety of animals walking around the greens. Here are some of the best ones to visit this autumn.
Richmond Park, London, England
Richmond Park has 2,360 acre and it is the largest of the Royal Parks in London. It is also Britain’s second largest urban walled park after Sutton Park in Birmingham. It is famous for its red and fallow deer, and there are over six hundred of them in Richmond Park. Londoners like the park due to its vast spaces and large population of animals. The park is a natural reserve thus the dogs cannot run around and the bonfires and barbecues are also forbidden.
Parc Guell, Barcelona
Parc Guell is the most famous park in Barcelona and probably even Spain. The park has plenty of colourful buildings, sculptures and mosaics, whose construction began in 1900 and lasted for over 20 years. Parc Guell is the perfect place to catch the autumn sun with not only colourful trees in the background but also magical setting.
Lake District, England
The Lake District National Park is located in the north-west of England and is the largest of the English National Parks and the second largest in the United Kingdom. Also, the highest mountains in England are within the Park boundary. The lakes and mountains combine to form impressive scenery unique to this corner of England.
De Hoge Veluwe National Park, Holland
This park is the largest National Park in the Netherlands and is approximately 55 square kilometres in area. It consists of heath lands, sand dunes, and woodlands. Most of the landscape of the park and the Veluwe was created during the last Ice Age.
