We look after eight of London's largest open spaces; Hyde, The Green, Richmond, Greenwich, St James's, Bushy and The Regent's Parks, and Kensington Gardens. The Royal Parks also manage other important open spaces in the capital including Grosvenor Square Garden, Brompton Cemetery, Victoria Tower Gardens, Canning Green and Poet's Corner.
With 500 years of history, the 5,000 acres of The Royal Parks are home to avenues of veteran oaks and shelter rare species of wildlife. They feature listed landscapes, protected views and important national monuments and offer boating lakes, wildflower meadows, sports pitches and popular children's playgrounds.
All of these give the Parks' 37 million visitors a year their own magical experience to share.
Our charitable objectives:
Heritage: Help protect the past, present and future heritage of the Parks and their rare and special assets
Education: Engage visitors with the history and natural world within the Parks as well as their importance to the nation
Well-being: Reach out to make the Parks part of more people's lives, enhancing their physical and mental well-being
Nature: Conserve wildlife, support biodiversity and promote sustainability.
