London National Park City Week

21 - 29 July 2018

Explore London's amazing outdoors and help make the city greener this summer.

What is London National Park City Week?

From 21-29 July, the city will host the first ever London National Park City Week. There’ll be loads of fantastic events and activities all week long as we celebrate London’s unique green spaces.

We’ve been working with National Park City Foundation and our partners across London to create a great variety of events that will give Londoners the chance to explore the city with walks, talks, explorations, family activities and more.

National Park City Week is part of the Mayor’s plan to help make London a National Park City in 2019, where more than half its area is green and to do that we need your help.

We’ll publish details of the full London National Park City Week programme in June.

Events will include:

  • walks and explorations to discover some of London’s lesser known green gems, footpaths and waterways
  • family activities in parks across the city
  • encounters with urban wildlife from butterflies to bats
  • opportunities to help look after local green spaces and find out what you can do at home
  • boat trips, bike rides, tree trails and more!

In the meantime, why not get planting or explore some of our wonderful green spaces. Share your experiences using  #NationalParkCity.
