Clip from a 1954 film about the parks and pleasure gardens of London showing many of the sports and pastimes carried on in them.

'There is a green belt around the city and green islands at its heart - all carefully kept to provide places of rest where nature is to be enjoyed.' The film shows the changing seasons in London's parks and open spaces, from summer to winter and through to spring. Shows the parks of London such as Hampstead Heath, Battersea Park and Victoria Embankment Gardens in central London. Shots of gardeners tending to flower beds, CUs of flowers, people on park benches. Autumn arrives and leaves begin to fall.
