regents canal photos

Victoria Park adjoins the canal and has public toilets at the east end of the lake (short detour).
Allegedly the worlds oldest park, in 2009 it sports the warning "Caution Water". What has happened to this "sceptr'd isle", this "island race", whose fishermen once "went down to the sea in ships" and from whose ports the likes of Nelson and Cook set sail and from whose shores Churchill defiantly roared "we will fight them on the beaches" that we need to be cautioned about a mere duck pond? Would Queen Victoria be amused?
