The Regent's Park

Will probably, in time, rival, if not greatly excel, the present fashionable parts of the metropolis; not only as a place of residence for the great and the wealthy, but for the attractions which it will possess in other respects. It is formed in Mary-le-bone Fields, and is now the scene of vast improvements.

The PROMENADES about the metropolis, besides those included in the Royal Parks, Kensington Gardens &c., are numerous. The visitors and the inhabitants have the power of occasionally securing pleasant exercise in the Temple and Gray's Inn Gardens, and others of smaller extent. And the lovers of promenading will derive pleasure from witnessing the agreeable accommodations, which families possess in the exclusive use of those elegant walks and grounds which are to be found in some of the fashionable squares in which they reside.
