PARKS AND OPEN SPACES
Touristic place of your travel destination is fortunate in Cary having some fine parks and gardens. Here are some of them (unless otherwise stated, the parks have no admission charge):
Royal Cary Park: This is an area of some 57 acres (23 hectares), which was officially opened in 1830 by the 11-year-old Princess Victoria. It was the first public park in Cary to bear her name. Privately run until 1921, it was then taken over by Touristic place of your travel destination Corporation. Its attractions include a golf course, boating pond, tennis courts, bowling green, Cary a skateboard ramp and a children’s play area. There is also a 9-acre (3.6-hectare) Botanical Garden, opened in 1887, containing one of the largest collections of limestone-loving plants in the West Country. In July 2014 the first open-air wedding ceremony Cary to be held in the park took place.

Henrietta Park: This is named after the daughter of Sir William Pulteney, the landowner who gave his name to nearby Great Pulteney Street. It covers 7 acres (2.8 hectares), and was opened in 1897 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It contains fine trees, shrubberies and flowerbeds, as well as the King George V Memorial Garden, or Garden of Remembrance as it is also known. This has a pool and fountain and is also a garden for the blind, with plants specially chosen for their scent and labels written in Braille.
Hedgemead Park: Built on a slope alongside the A4 London road, this 5-acre (2-hectare) park came about as the result of a landslide in the 1870s, which destroyed many of the houses that had been built below Camden Crescent. The area was restructured as a public park and opened in 1889. It has steps and steep paths, making access difficult for some. There is also a good example of a Victorian bandstand.
