Sometimes, you stumble upon nice places where you definitely weren't expecting them. I live in Willsden Green, a nice location with lots of shops, families, green, and good public transport. But nice is about it when describing my area - it's not exciting at all, it's just a plain, safe middle-class north west London area. But when going for a walk with my flatmate to show her where the sports centre is (we do have a nice and modern sports centre within walking distance!), we stumbled upon a nice park. Never knew it was there, and it's so calm and beautiful, without screaming children and annoying dogs. It's as if you're not in London at all! Defenitely going there more often when the weather's nice and I need to relax!
