description/

Originally planned as a reflecting pool for a conservatory that was never built, Conservatory Water became an attraction in its own right and is now best known as a spot to race and sail model boats. Immortalized in Stuart Little (both the book and the movie), the pond is next to the Kerbs Boathouse Café, as well as notable statues of Hans Christian Anderson and Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
