Radnor Gardens features beautiful trees including a rare Indian Bean tree (Catalpa speciosa), and it is believed that the first Weeping Willows were planted here.
Fishing is permitted and there is a popular bowling club with a well-maintained green.
The historic importance of these grounds dates from the mid-18th century when the 4th Earl of Radnor's neighbours were Horace Walpole and Alexander Pope, and the residential area we now know as Strawberry Hill was renowned for its association with men of letters and the arts. The summerhouse and the gazebo in the gardens also date from that period.
