Round Pond (London)
The pond was created in 1730 by George II. It is approximately seven acres in extent, measuring approximately 200 m by 150 m. It is up to 5 m deep. Despite its name, it is not circular, but rectangular with stepped and rounded corners. With a long history of popularity with model yacht enthusiasts, it is the home of the Model Yacht Sailing Association (established 1876) and the London Model Yacht Club (established 1884).
