Enjoy a loop walk around scenic Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park in Westminster. If you begin at Hyde Park Corner, the walk will take you about 1.5 miles and maybe 60 minutes as you search for the 5 caches and enjoy the views. You can also begin at the Serpentine Bridge car park and walk east to Hyde Park Corner, although you will have to circle the lake to catch them all. Posted hours for the park are 5am to Midnight, and it must be very beautiful on a moonlit night. The park is lush with flowers right now, and the large green open spaces give it a sense of peacefulness. Dozens of park benches line the walkways for a quick lunch or a lingering visit with a good novel. The Serpentine boating lake is filled with birds at this time in the season (February), but will soon be a popular boating lake when the weather improves.
Hyde Park is one of London's finest landscapes and covers over 350 acres and it has been open to the public since 1637.
Hyde Park #06 will be found near the coordinates above, which will lead you to a location within view and earshot of Speaker's Corner. Sundays can be interesting there, but Saturdays are very quiet.
Please be mindful of the foot traffic along the pathway, since it can be quite busy on even the coldest or wettest day. You will also need to go around the fence in order to retrieve the cache.
The cache contains a log only, so please bring your own pen or pencil. When replacing the log, make sure it is protected from view just as you found it.
