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?

The first ever London National Park City Week runs from 21-29 July. There’ll be over 270 of fantastic events and activities all week long as we celebrate London’s unique green spaces, trees, waterways and natural environment.

We’ve been working with National Park City Foundation and partners across London to put together a programme 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, and to do that we need your help.

View the full listings on our London National Park City Week event page.

Events 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!

The Mayor will also be calling on all Londoners to play their part in making London greener during National Park City Week. We'll be announcing more details during the week.

You don't have to go to an event to join in with National Park City Week. Why not visit a park you've not been to before, have a picnic with friends or share a photo of your favourite tree. See our events page for information about the photo competitions running during the week. We'll also be updating this webpage with ideas of places to visit and free maps and trails to help you explore London's amazing outdoors.
