Andrea: There’s nothing quite like going out for a walk in the park.

Sun Chen: 我同意。在公园漫步 – 有鸟、有蜜蜂、还有树….

Andrea: So why not take a walk in Greenwich Park? Hello I’m Andrea.

Sun Chen: 还有我,孙晨。在今天的都市掠影当中,我们要去一个满眼都是绿色的地方。没错,这个地方就是伦敦众多公园当中的一个,格林尼治公园。

Greenwich Park

Walking in Greenwich Park is relaxing.

Andrea: Greenwich is famous for the Cutty Sark ship.

Sun Chen: 还有一个让它著名的就是它是全世界的零时区。这里的格林尼治标准时间和这里的天文台。

Andrea: Observatory.

Sun Chen: 这两样一样出名。

Andrea: But at the centre of it all is Greenwich Park. A place where people go to jog, have picnics and enjoy nature.

Sun Chen: Derrick Spur 是这里的总经理。他就领着我们一起去漫步这座格林尼治公园。

Derrick Spur: Greenwich Park is the oldest of the Royal Parks and it's got a history going back to the 12th, 13th century. Henry VIII was born here at the Palace of Placentia which is at the bottom of the park near the river. At one stage the park extended right down to the river. In later years the National Maritime Museum was developed and the old Royal Naval College. And the park remains at about 200 acres or 78 hectares.

Andrea: Derrick says that Greenwich Park is the oldest Royal Park in London. Other famous Royal Parks in London are Kew Gardens and Kensington Gardens which are also beautiful to visit.

Sun Chen: 不过,让人意想不到的居然是英国的亨利八世就出生在这里,当然也不能生在公园里,但是却是降生在这座公园里的一座宫殿里。要是这么说起来,这座公园的历史可以推算到十二和十三世纪。

Andrea: Derrick told us that at one time the park went all the way down to the river Thames. He uses the phrase – at one stage. At one time.

Sun Chen: 不过现在在这里诞生的很多新的景点儿隔断了这座公园和泰晤士河。这就是国家海军博物馆。

Andrea: National Maritime Museum.

Sun Chen: 和皇家海军学院。

Andrea: Royal Naval College. It’s an enormous space – 200 acres of trees and flowers. Here’s Derrick describing some of the wildlife you can find there.

Derrick Spur: What we’ve got in the park – we’ve got a collection of red and fallow deer. We’ve got about 30 of those. We’ve got quite a lot of wildlife in terms of ducks, geese, that fly in. Grey squirrels which can be a bit of a nuisance – they do quite a lot of damage to the trees. In terms of plants we’ve got a collection of azaleas and rhododendrons. As you can see at the moment it’s very very colourful. So we’ve got a whole range of plants – we’ve got a herb garden and one of the, I boast, one of the best rose gardens in London.

Andrea: So it’s not just about grass and trees. Greenwich Park has a whole lot of wildlife too.

Sun Chen: Derrick 还跟我们说起了这里的野生动物。这其中就有鹿。

Andrea: Deer.

Sun Chen: 鸭子。

Andrea: Ducks.

In terms of plants we’ve got a collection of azaleas and rhododendrons 杜鹃花。 As you can see at the moment it’s very very colourful.

Sun Chen: 鹅。

Andrea: Geese.

Sun Chen: 还有很多灰松鼠。

Andrea: Grey squirrels. I love squirrels. They’re so cute. Though they can be a bit of a nuisance according to Derrick. They can be an irritation. That’s because they can do damage to the trees.

Sun Chen: Derrick 跟我们说,这座公园还种植了很多种类的杜鹃花。

Andrea: You can use the word ‘collection’ to talk about all sorts of groups of things.

Sun Chen: A collection of stamps.

Andrea: A collection of comics.

Sun Chen: And a collection of paintings. A collection. 就是一整套的意思。

Andrea: Finally Derrick talks very proudly about the rose garden in the park. He thinks it’s one of the best in London.

Sun Chen: 是啊,英国人就是喜欢玫瑰花!

Derrick Spur: Another interesting point to mention for Greenwich Park is that it’s been selected for the equestrian events for the Olympics in 2012 where we will have horses galloping and jumping through the park.

Andrea: This is not just a park. It’s a place where major sporting events take place.

Sun Chen: 2012 年伦敦奥运会的时候,这座格林尼治公园将作为马术比赛的场地。

Andrea: Horses will be jumping and galloping through the park. I can’t wait.

Sun Chen: 而且,这座公园同时也是伦敦马拉松比赛的起点。每年的伦敦马拉松都吸引了世界众多的好手。

Andrea: So Sun Chen, do you enjoy going to the park in the summer?

Sun Chen: Of course, I do like walking in the park, especially in summer.

Andrea: For me, because London is such a busy city, it’s just so lovely that it has so many parks. It really does give you a chance to go somewhere peaceful to relax and unwind.

Sun Chen: 好了,估计我们是不是也把你到公园散步的瘾也勾起来了呢?我们这里也要跟你说再见了。登录我们的网址,你可以查阅每天我们所有的节目。

Andrea: Until the next time. Bye!

Sun Chen: 我们下次节目再见!
