Borough boundary[edit]

Where in the park does the boundary between Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea fall? I'm working on the page List of public art in Westminster and am wondering which sculptures ought to be be on that page and which on List of public art in Kensington and Chelsea. Currently I have the statue of Jenner, Physical Energy and Peter Pan on the Westminster side. Ham 07:45, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

According to the boundary map found on Westminster City Council's website, the boundary runs from Palace Gate on the South side to Black Lion Gate on the North side, and follows the path of the Broad Walk. So, as well as the works you mention, the Albert Memorial and Speke's monument would be in Westminster, while the statues of Queen Victoria and William III would be in Kensington & Chelsea. Among others, of course, as there must be many other sculptures in the Gardens...

Kensington Gardens OR Kensington Palace Gardens?[edit]

There are a couple of pictures in the gallery that are captioned "Kensington Palace Gardens". If that's the case, they should be posted on its correct page, not here as the two are different places: one (Kensington Gardens) is a park and the other (Kensington Palace Gardens) is a street running along the West side of the park. I believe the authors of the photographs meant Kensington Gardens, but I can't be sure. If someone does know, could the captions be amended? Thanks. --ErikaJJ (talk) 17:48, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
