About Us

London Parks & Gardens is a small charity with a big mission to champion London’s historic parks, gardens, squares and green spaces for the benefit of everyone.

We do this by:

  • Researching and recording in our Inventory the history of green spaces across the capital.  We make this information publicly available for free on this website.
  • Campaigning and making comments to ensure the interests of historic green spaces are fully accounted for in the planning process.
  • Running events, including walks and talks for our members, and London Open Gardens Weekend – a major annual celebration of London’s hidden green spaces that generates the vital funds we rely on the rest of the year.

Our Values

We inspire action and appreciation for London’s historic green spaces; collaborate to defend them, celebrate their value and enable everyone to enjoy them.
