LONDON NATIONAL PARK CITY

The grassroots movement for everyone making London greener, healthier and wilder.

London became the world’s first National Park City in July 2019, so that Londoners and urban nature could be better connected.

The National Park City Foundation is an independent charity entirely funded by grants and individual donations from Londoners.

Our city is almost 50% green and blue space – home to an astonishing 15,000 species, 8 million trees, and dozens of protected habitats.

There are always things to Make & Do every week in London’s thousands of parks, community gardens, greens spaces, rivers and canals.

Our pop-up Visitors Centre at 109 Fleet Street is where you can find out how to transform our streets, buildings, and neighbourhoods.

Join our free online Community to keep up to date with how we’re bringing the outdoors to more people, and getting more people outdoors.
