John Nash's design still dominates the character and appearance of Regent's Park Conservation Area, with its stucco terraces enclosing extensive parkland, in which there are isolated villas and the ornamental lake at the centre. Although the architecture of the terraces differs in style, they have a uniformity of design which carries forward Nash's townscape concept, although his masterplan was never completed.
During the Victorian era the Park's character changed from that of a private residential estate to its current appearance as a public park, with incidental private dwellings. Today the Park is also home to the Zoological Gardens and to Queen Mary's and Nesfield's Gardens, which all contribute to its unique character.
It was designated as a conservation area in 1969.
