Appearances

Mary Poppins Returns

The Park Keeper is prominently featured as a gag character where he appears at the beginning of the film telling guests to keep off the grass. Just as John, Annabel and Georgie attempt to retrieve the kite, the park keeper notices this. Just as Jack arrives, he grabs the kite Michael used to own as a child to which Mary Poppins arrives toward the group. He later appears again during the musical number "Can You Imagine That?" where he appears as reminiscent of his real world version, only telling visitors to keep off the sea grass. During the end of the film, he does not notice the Banks children walking on the grass.
