London is one of the greenest cities in the world. Seen from above, more than half of the area is green or blue – amazing for one of the world’s major cities. Glass skyscrapers, busy streets and heritage buildings coexist with allotments, rivers, parks and gardens.
The Mayor wants to make London greener. Iconic parks are part of what makes London special, and green spaces provide welcome shelter in our increasingly built-up world. When designed and managed as an integrated ‘green infrastructure’, our network of parks, green spaces and trees can make the city more resilient and neighbourhoods more livable. The All London Green Grid provides the green infrastructure framework for London.
