The Green Park

In reality, forms a part of the afore-mentioned grounds. It lies on the north-west side of Buckingham house, or the Queen's Palace, and extends between St. James's Park and Hyde Park. Constitution Hill is the name given to the fine road of communication between them. This park adds greatly to the pleasantness of both palaces, as well as of the surrounding houses, which are so fortunately situated, as to overlook it; among which is the magnificent and highly conspicuous house belonging to earl Spencer. The promenade round the basin, and other parts of this small, but beautiful park, possesses, for a town scene, unequalled attractions.
