English Garden is one of the largest public parks in the world. Covering an area of about 370 hectares (910 acres), it stretches from the city center all the way to the northeastern city limits. Originally created in 1789 by inventor and physicist Sir Benjamin Thompson, the park was massively extended and improved by a series of his successors. The park's name refers to a style of informal landscape gardening popular in Britain in the mid-18th century. Wander the area to see a number of eye-catching temples, teahouses, pavilions, and pagodas. The park's main features are its meadows and ponds, which spread over a gently rolling terrain. Relax under the shade of trees or take advantage of nearly 80 km (50 mi) of biking and hiking trails. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Munich trip simple and quick.

English Garden reviews
we had a wonderful stroll and small picnic. It was good for people watching, esp the surfers! We were there on a nice day and lots of locals were there with their kids and their pets.

This place is just wow, scenic place with lot of places to admire the nature. You can either walk, cycle inside the park, kids will. Enjoy the vast open space to play. There is a place at entrance where people surf on the water flow. You need at least half day to roam around the Garden to enjoy it completely
Realy nice place! There is a lake and also the possibility to rent a pedal or paddle boat 20€ for half an hour There are beautiful ducks and swans hanging out among the people, literally a stunning place for a couple or family outing. Easy parking, 3€ for the first 2 hours.
