Behind the scenes
Role in the film
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 Banks attempt to retrieve the kite their father, Michael, used to own as a child, he notices this. Just as Jack arrives, he grabs the kite to which Mary Poppins arrives toward them. 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 John, Annabel, and Georgie walking on the grass.
