A Platform for Free Speech? – The History of Hyde Park in London

Hyde Park is located in the center of London, and is one of the largest parks in the city, consisting of 350 acres. Henry VII obtained it from the Monks of Westminster Abbey in 1536. He often rode a horse to hunt for deer on the property. The park was only for private hunting until James I became king and granted limited access to the public. King James arranged someone to be in charge of taking care of the park. Then in 1637, Charles I altered everything when he opened Hyde Park to the public. William III moved his home to Kensington Palace, which is on the far side of Hyde Park, in 1689. The king put in a drive, which is now known as Rotten Row. The road leads from Hyde Park corner towards Kensington Palace. In 1733 the park had some major landscaping done for Queen Caroline. A piece of water called The Serpentine was created. In 1826, designer George Rennie designed a bridge to separate The Serpentine from The Long Water.
