Zoological Gardens, Regent's Park. The Zoological Gardens opened to the public in 1828. They soon became a popular attraction for both young and old. American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote in his English Note-Books (1857) that he found 'a good many well-dressed people and children in the gardens, Saturday being a fashionable day for visiting them.' He thought the Zoological Gardens 'not quite worthy of London, – not so good as one would expect them to be.'
