Having seen a bunch of Tulips at Lansdowne Park, our excitement had already started to build-up. The main location, however, was Commissioner’s Park (next to Down’s Lake Pavilion). Had we know about it beforehand, we would have started our experience from here. Nevertheless, we still had a bit of time left on our first day, so we headed to the Commissioner’s Park (just 2.5 kilometers away from Lansdowne Park).
You can go with the official parking there (the charge is $15 per day). However, there are numerous streets around where you can park for an hour for free (the weekends are free anyway). Do you really think people come back within an hour? There were many who parked for even half-a-day. With a world-famous festival going on around, guess nobody really bothers!This was the location that caught our fancy, and we visited it thrice over the 3 days we spent on the trip. There were long batches of tulips of almost every color and variety.The tulips were marked with their names, some were fancy too – like The Princess. The kids and adults alike were having the time of their lives. We were no different!There was information too on the history of the festival and how Britain still contributes every year with a generous gift of Tulips.
