Just a short walk from The Savill Garden lies Cow Pond, an ornamental lake gilded with an abundance of water lilies that bloom throughout the summer months.
Cow Pond was renovated in 2012 to commemorate H.M. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, with the diamond lattice balustrade of the Baroque-style footbridge being designed specifically to represent this momentous event. The oak arbour and footbridge were added as part of the renovation project, and as with the roof of The Savill Building, both the arbour and the footbridge were expertly crafted from sustainable Windsor Estate oak.
Whilst visiting Cow Pond, take a trip to nearby Chapel Wood. Autumn fills this woodland with the glorious colour of the Japanese maples, while a visit during January and February will be rewarded with colourful and sweetly perfumed witch hazels. Whatever the season, this charming wood is always a worthwhile addition to your walk.
Cow Pond was formally created in the early 1700s by architect Henry Flitcroft, as an extension from an existing pond. The oak arbour and footbridge, added as part of the renovations in 2012, were built according to the original 1748 designs.
