Wooded Glade is an arbitrary title chosen by me to describe the various tree lined and stepped walks, off the beaten track so to speak, shown below on a small group of postcards.

These pleasant short walks still remain, albiet changed in appearance and position, located at the outer reaches of the Park such as around the rear of the Observatory.
