(BUCKINGHAM PALACE--14g) St. James's Park outside Buckingham Palace, United Kingdom, England. St. James's Park is a 23 hectares park in the City of Westminster, central London.The park lies at the southernmost tip of the St James's area.The park has a small lake, St. James's Park Lake, with two islands, West Island and Duck Island, which is named for the lake's collection of waterfowl. This includes a resident colony of pelicans, which has been a feature of the park since the first gift of the birds from a Russian ambassador in 1664. The Blue Bridge across the lake affords a view west towards Buckingham Palace framed by trees. Looking east the view includes the Swire fountain to the north of Duck Island and, past the lake, the grounds known as the Horse Guards Parade, with the Horse Guards building, the Old War Office building, and Whitehall Court progressively behind.
