English Hyde Park, London

Hyde Park is a Grade I-listed major park in Central London. It is the largest of four Royal Parks that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace. The park is divided by the Serpentine and the Long Water lakes.

The park was established by Henry VIII in 1536 when he took the land from Westminster Abbey and used it as a hunting ground. It opened to the public in 1637 and quickly became popular, particularly for May Day parades. Major improvements occurred in the early 18th century under the direction of Queen Caroline. Several duels took place in Hyde Park during this time, often involving members of the nobility. The Great Exhibition of 1851 was held in the park, for which The Crystal Palace, designed by Joseph Paxton, was erected.

Free speech and demonstrations have been a key feature of Hyde Park since the 19th century. Speakers' Corner has been established as a point of free speech and debate since 1872, while the Chartists, the Reform League, the suffragettes, and the Stop the War Coalition have all held protests there. In the late 20th century, the park was known for holding large-scale free rock music concerts, featuring groups such as Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and Queen. Major events in the park have continued into the 21st century, such as Live 8 in 2005, and the annual Hyde Park Winter Wonderland from 2007.

Spanish Hyde Park

Hyde Park es un parque situado en Londres, Reino Unido. Es el mayor de los cuatro parques reales, que forman una cadena desde el Palacio de Kensington hasta el Palacio de Buckingham, pasando por los Jardines de Kensington, Hyde Park, Hyde Park Corner y Green Park. En el parque se encuentran los lagos Serpentine y The Long Water.

El parque fue creado por Enrique VIII en 1536 usando terrenos de la Abadía de Westminster como coto de caza. Abrió al público en 1637 y rápidamente se hizo popular, particularmente para los desfiles de las fiestas de mayo. A principios del siglo xviii se realizaron importantes mejoras por orden de la reina Carolina. En esta época se realizaron varios duelos en Hyde Park, en los que a menudo participaban miembros de la nobleza. En 1851 se celebró en el parque la Gran Exposición, para la cual se construyó el Palacio de Cristal, diseñado por Joseph Paxton.

Speakers' Corner (en español, «rincón del orador») ha sido un punto de realización de discursos y debates libres desde 1872, mientras que los cartistas, la Reform League, las suffragettes y la coalición antiguerra han realizado protestas en el parque. A finales del siglo xx, el parque se hizo conocido por la celebración de grandes conciertos de música rock de grupos como Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones y Queen. En el siglo xxi se han seguido celebrando eventos importantes en el parque, como Live 8 en 2005, y el Hyde Park Winter Wonderland anualmente desde 2007.

French Hyde Park

Hyde Park est le plus grand parc du centre de Londres, en Angleterre, ainsi que l'un des neuf parcs royaux de la capitale, avec une longueur de plus de deux kilomètres et près d’un kilomètre de largeur.

C'est aussi un des quartiers de la Cité de Westminster à Londres. Seule la Serpentine (The Serpentine ou Serpentine River) le sépare des jardins de Kensington (Kensington Gardens), de sorte que l'on considère parfois ces derniers comme une partie de Hyde Park. Sa superficie de 140 hectares, ajoutée à celle de Kensington Gardens s'étendant sur 110 hectares, donne une surface totale de 250 hectares.

zh 海德公园

海德公園(英語:Hyde Park)位于英国伦敦中心的西敏市,是伦敦最大的皇家庭园,同时也是一级登录公园。该公园被九曲湖及长湖分为两部分。许多人认为其近邻肯辛顿花园是海德公园的一部分,严格来说它们是两个公园。从肯辛顿宫的入口起,穿过肯辛顿花园及海德公园,由海德公园角来到绿园,途经白金汉宫,到达圣詹姆斯公园,四座御苑连成一片。

1536年,亨利八世解散西敏寺,得到了这块土地,并将其用作狩猎场。1637年,公园对公众开放后迅速获得欢迎,五朔节巡游更是吸引众多市民。18世纪初,在卡罗琳王后的指导下,公园进行了多项重要改造。这一时期,海德公园内发生了多场决斗,常常有皇室成员参与其中。1851年,万国工业博览会在此举行,建筑师约瑟夫·帕克斯顿设计的主要展馆水晶宫也同时落成。

自19世纪起,海德公园便成为人们举行各种演讲、政治集会等群众活动的场所。从1872年开始,公园内著名的演说者之角常有自由演说和辩论,改革联盟、宪章运动、妇女参政论者、反战联盟都曾在此举行抗议。20世纪末,该公园以举办大型免费摇滚音乐会而闻名,平克·弗洛伊德、滚石乐队和皇后乐队等音乐团体都曾在此演出。直至21世纪,商业音乐会仍在持续举办,如2005年的现场八方。

Places located in Hyde Park

The Great Exhibition

The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations or The Great Exhibition (sometimes referred to as the Crystal Palace Exhibition in reference to the temporary structure in which it was held), an international exhibition, took place in Hyde Park, London, from 1 May to 15 October 1851. It was the first in a series of World's Fairs, exhibitions of culture and industry that became popular in the 19th century. The Great Exhibition was organised by Henry Cole and by Prince Albert, husband of the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom, Queen Victoria.

Famous people of the time attended, including Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Michael Faraday (who assisted with the planning and judging of exhibits), Samuel Colt, members of the Orléanist Royal Family and the writers Charlotte Brontë, Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll, George Eliot, Alfred Tennyson and William Makepeace Thackeray. The opening music, under the superintendence of William Sterndale Bennett was directed by Sir George Smart.

Serpentine

The Serpentine (also known as the Serpentine River) is a 40-acre (16 ha) recreational lake in Hyde Park, London, England, created in 1730 at the behest of Queen Caroline. Although it is common to refer to the entire body of water as the Serpentine, strictly the name refers only to the eastern half of the lake. Serpentine Bridge, which marks the boundary between Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, also marks the Serpentine's western boundary; the long and narrow western half of the lake is known as the Long Water. The Serpentine takes its name from its snakelike, curving shape, although it only has one bend.

Originally fed by the River Westbourne and Tyburn Brook in the 1730s, the lake's water was then pumped from the Thames in the 1830s. The water is now pumped from three boreholes within Hyde Park, the most recent being installed in May 2012 as part of the 2011–2012 restoration of the Lake. The Serpentine provided a focal point for The Great Exhibition of 1851, and more recently was a venue for the men's and women's triathlon and marathon swimming events in the London 2012 Olympics. Since 1864 the Serpentine Swimming Club has organised a 100-yard race every Christmas morning. In 1913, the Peter Pan Cup was inaugurated for this race by J. M. Barrie, the creator of the fictional character Peter Pan.

There are many recreational facilities around the Serpentine, as well as boating on the lake itself. In 1860 the Serpentine was to be modified into a skating pond with formal edges. This scheme was not implemented. Among the landmarks near the lake is the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.

Rush of Green

The Rush of Green, also known as Pan or The Bowater House Group, was the last sculpture completed by Jacob Epstein before his death at his home in Hyde Park Gate on 19 August 1959. The sculpture group includes a long-limbed family – father, mother, son and dog – rushing towards Hyde Park, encouraged by the Greek god Pan playing his pipes. It was cast in bronze posthumously and installed in 1961 on a plinth separating the carriageways of Edinburgh Gate beneath Bowater House. The sculpture was removed when Bowater House was demolished in 2006 and reinstalled near the building which replaced it, One Hyde Park, in 2010. The sculpture was granted a Grade II listing in January 2016.

The sculpture was commissioned by Harold Samuel in November 1957. He was the chairman of the Land Securities Investment Trust, and intended the statue to be sited beside the company's new office development at Bowater House, on the southern edge of Hyde Park. It was cast in bronze by Morris Singer and installed in April 1961 in the middle of Edinburgh Gate, a road that ran from Knightsbridge underneath the newly built Bowater House to South Carriage Drive. A maquette of the sculpture was exhibited in the foyer of the building.

The sculpture was removed when Bowater House was demolished in 2006 to be replaced by One Hyde Park and reinstalled in 2010 at the entrance to the relocated Edinburgh Gate, some distance to the west, still beside South Carriage Road, accompanied by new 15 metres (49 ft) bronze gates designed by Wendy Ramshaw.

Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain

The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain is a memorial in London dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a car crash in 1997. It was designed to express Diana's spirit and love of children.The fountain is located in the southwest corner of Hyde Park, just south of the Serpentine lake and east of the Serpentine Gallery. Its cornerstone was laid in September 2003 and it was officially opened on 6 July 2004 by Queen Elizabeth II. Also present were Diana's younger brother Charles Spencer, her ex-husband Prince Charles, and her sons William and Harry, her ex father in law Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and her two sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale . The opening ceremony brought the Windsors and the Spencers together for the first time in 7 years.

Cavalry of the Empire Memorial

The Cavalry of the Empire Memorial, also known as the Cavalry Memorial, is a war memorial in Hyde Park, London. It commemorates the service of cavalry regiments in the First and Second World Wars. It became a Grade II listed building in 1987, and was promoted to Grade II* in November 2014.

Hyde Park Holocaust memorial

The Holocaust Memorial in Hyde Park, London, was the first public memorial in Great Britain dedicated to victims of the Holocaust. It lies to the east of the Serpentine Lake, in The Dell, an open-air area within the park. Since its unveiling in 1983 remembrance services have taken place at the memorial every year.

7 July Memorial

The 7 July Memorial is a permanent memorial to the 52 victims of the 7 July 2005 London bombings. It is located on the east side of Hyde Park, between Lover's Walk and Park Lane, close to Curzon Gate and about 150 metres (490 ft) north of the monumental statue of Achilles.
