Richmond Park is a 955 hectares urban park within London. Almost three times as large as New York City's Central Park, it is Britain's largest urban walled park. The park is famous for its red and fallow deer, which number over six hundred.
King Henry VIII's Mound is the highest point within the park and is located within the public gardens of Pembroke Lodge. From the Mound there is a protected view of St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London over 10 miles (16 km) to the east which was established in 1710. A telescope is installed on the mound, for a better viewing experience.
