Millions of Londoners and tourists visit the eight Royal Parks for free each year. The historic parkland provides unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of the capital. A simple walk or a picnic in the park, sport, top quality entertainment, community and education projects - all waiting for you. The Royal Parks manages and conserves these spaces to ensure future generations can enjoy them too. Their green fleet ensures maintenance is carried out with minimal impact on noise and air quality.
The Royal Parks provide fantastic 'green' routes in London, taking cyclists away from traffic and through some of the most attractive areas of the capital. Cycling is allowed on ALL roads AND some specially designated cycle routes within the Parks - the only exception is Primrose Hill. Many of the routes link in with the wider London Cycle Network. A number of cycle hire stations will be located within the parks, for the collection and deposit of hire bikes as part of the Mayor of London's Cycle Hire Scheme.
There are many different opportunities to work with The Royal Parks, from helping with education activities to driving Liberty Drive buggies! The Royal Parks offer volunteers training and support including a newsletter and programme of trips and socials. Click here to register.
