London Parks & Gardens protects our green capital. We help everyone to appreciate and access historic green spaces from our home at the iconic Duck Island Cottage in St James’ Park, SW1.  

We welcome you to discover the history of London’s parks and gardens through our Inventory. Through our regular series of talks and our publications, you can also learn about the people that have shaped London’s parks and gardens and ongoing management challenges.

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

Or get more involved and join our Trustees – we are currently recruiting for a new Chair.
