Are London's parks safe to walk in early in the morning after sun-up?

Was wondering if it is safe to walk in London's Hyde Park, Regent's Park, Green Park, and St. James's Park in the morning after sunrise?

Yes, why are you worried about it?

Hi welldidyouknowthat--

Thanks for the helpful reply. To explain, I'm hoping to do some early morning walking (ca. 7-9 AM or so) to experience these parks on an upcoming London visit. And I'd be reluctant to do so that time of day in various parts of New York's Central Park, or Madrid's Casa de Campo, for instance; was wondering if the same was true or not for London's parks. Very glad to know that's not a problem.

There will be plenty of people in the parks at that time especially if it is a work day.

when you actually see those parks in person you will understand why there really isn't any danger.

People will be out and about and the parks are pretty much wide open.

I used to run in Hyde Park/Kensington Park in January about 6:00 am. It was still dark, but it was amazing how many people were out including the bobbies on horseback. Perfectly safe.

I seem to remember homeless people sleeping in Green Park.
