Welcome

London Square Open Gardens Weekend

The London Gardens Trust welcomes you to discover the history of London’s parks and gardens through our Inventory. You can also learn about the people that have shaped London’s parks and gardens and ongoing management challenges through our regular series of talks and our publications.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer, helping with events such as London Square Open Gardens Weekend; researching and recording; or helping to campaign to protect London’s precious landscapes.

Below is April’s Photo of the Month of Springfield Hospital by SHARE Community Horticulture Project from our Inventory. If you would like to enter an image for our website, add #lgtgardenparty to your photos of London’s green spaces on Instagram and we may feature you on our home page.
