The Rose Garden in Welland Park, Market Harborough, England. At the centre of the Rose Garden is the old Bell Tower from the old Symington Corset Factory (now used as the council offices).

Located near Harborough town centre, Welland Park is the main park in the Harborough District, offering a range of facilities to visitors. The Millennium Mile cyclepath and footpath running alongside the River Welland links the park to Harborough's Train Station. The park includes a Rose Garden, Playing field, Tennis Courts, Bowling Green, Mini Golf Course, Cafe, Riverside walk, and many beautifully planted flowerbeds. There is also a small skate park adjoining the main section of the park.

The park was awarded a Green Flag award for its high standards in 2007, and has also received the award in all subsequent years so far. The park also plays a large part in Harborough's entry to the East Midlands in Bloom Competition, in which the town consistently does well.

Questo panorama è stato scattato in England, Europe

Questa è una vista generale di Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
