Pocket Parks Programme

Pocket parks are part of the Mayor’s London’s Great Outdoors - the programme to improve streets, squares, parks, and canal and riverside spaces across London. Pocket parks are small areas of inviting public space for all people to enjoy, providing relief from the hustle and bustle of the city. These spaces have trees and greenery; they are open to all; they have places to sit and relax and for people to come together; and they  contribute to making the city friendlier, greener and more resilient.  All of our £2million pocket park funding has now been allocated to over 100 parks in 26 London boroughs. 

All 100 pocket parks will be popping up accross London in time for you to enjoy next spring.  Find out where your nearest one is HERE.



If you are interested in how we chose our parks, you are welcome to read our Pocket Parks Prospectus for more information.

All of our funding has been allocated, however if you have any questions about the Pocket Park Programme or would like advice on creating your own Pocket Park please contact nicola.murphy-evans@london.gov.uk or call 0207 983 4472.
