Park Square and Park Crescent Gardens
Park Square and Park Crescent Gardens are two of the grandest gardens at Regent’s Park, they are also two of the larger communal garden squares in London. Ratepayers of Park Square and Park Crescent normally have an automatic right to receive a garden key on application to the CEPC’s office, without further payment. Others can apply to be garden Subscribers and pay a fee for a key if they are resident either in the CEPC’s Regent’s Park estate or in the St Marylebone parish.
Park Square Gardens facilities include:
- children’s play area with swings and a sand pit
- limited supply of garden chairs and loungers
- toilet facilities
The CEPC now only issues one electronic key fob per subscriber and you should note that it is not transferable in any circumstances. If you allow anyone who is not a resident at the subscriber’s registered address to use your key fob, you are liable to have your key deactivated and your subscription cancelled.
Some garden users find the key fobs a bit tricky to use at first. The key to success is:
- hold the fob about four inches away from the lock
- press and hold down the brown button on the fob
- wait until you hear two bleeps
- keep turning the lock until the bolt opens
- push open the gate
- finally, you need your fob to get in and out, so don’t lose it in the garden but if you do get stuck call 07774 938 715 for assistance.
