St James's Park - This Park is about two miles in circumference, with handsome and spacious walks shaded with elms, &c. and is much frequented by the inhabitants of the city as well [as] Westminster. The canal is very long and its banks are adorned with detached clumps of trees. The part allotted for pasture is of a beautiful verdure, and forms an agreeable object. An herd of cows are generally seen to range there during the day. The park affords a charming prospect from the king’s apartments, and the houses of people of fashion are built on the verge of it. On Sundays in the afternoon, one may sometimes see upwards of fifty thousand people passing to and fro in it.
