We exist to raise funds and awareness to support the magic of London's eight amazing Royal Parks, now and in the future.
Looking after 5,000 acres of carefully conserved urban parkland, home to hundreds of thousands of trees, plants and wildlife, plus numerous historic monuments and of course more than 77 million visitors each year, is no small task.
Whilst The Royal Parks receives a government grant for the day-to-day care and management of the lawns, flower beds, roads and paths - keeping them safe and clean, in beautiful condition and bursting with life all year round - that grant has just been cut by more than 25% and there is little or no funding for sport, education, art, heritage restoration or wildlife conservation projects.
So that’s where we come in! We’re a small, energetic team of people who work incredibly hard to raise funds, make the most of every opportunity and create a wide variety of innovative projects to make The Royal Parks better places for everyone.
What we do
For more than ten years we have been working with generous individuals, businesses and charity trusts to keep the magic of the Parks alive
If you’ve set foot in one of London’s Parks, it’s likely you’ve experienced our work. You may have relaxed at one of our Yoga sessions or visited our Education Centre in Hyde Park. Perhaps you’ve run a personal best in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, one of the world’s most beautiful city runs, or had your photo taken in front of the stunning 20ft Tiffany Fountain re-created in St James’s Park.
Support the Parks
The Royal Parks are so important to London, Londoners and the history of our country as a whole. We would love many more people to become involved with our work. There are lots of ways you can support the Parks, from volunteering opportunities to adopting some of the wildlife – get stuck in!

At the Royal Parks Foundation, we all have at least one thing in common – we love The Royal Parks! Find out more about our team here.
We have a wonderful Board of Trustees. They are not just names on the letterhead; they really do roll up their sleeves and get stuck in.
Almost everything we do is achieved in partnership with others. We value these strong, productive relationships enormously.
