River Park is a modern 1970's development. The gardens here reflect the changing styles of gardening over the past half century. There are beautifully manicured lawns adorned with dazzlings displays of geranium, begonia and lobelia. Topiary became fashionable again in the 90's and Number 43 has an impressive wall of pyracantha outlining the ground floor windows and stretching up to the first floor, its orange berries providing winter food for the birds. Opposite there is Peggy's wild-flower meadow in miniature, bedecked in Spring with snowdrops, daffodils and daisies, a haven for bees and birds. Further along, the Japanese Zen garden is delightful in its quiet simplicity.
