Winged Lion Sculpture

Avenue Gardens and The English Gardens (Regent's Park)

The Avenue Gardens, also known as the 'Italian Gardens', were designed in the mid 19th century by the Victorian garden designer Andrew Nesfield, who also designed the Palm House in Kew. His son, Markham Nesfield, landscaped the adjacent English Gardens. Both were restored in the 1990s with the addition of fountains. The simple layout of the garden consists of four avenues of trees, long gravel paths and colourful flower beds among stonework and evergreen hedging. The huge Lion Tazza urn overflows with flowers in the centre of the garden. This is the original Nesfield bowl, supported by four winged lions.
