One of London’s finest landscapes, Hyde Park is a vast open green space which remains open and natural, a reflection of the Tudor hunting ground it once was.
As the charity for the Royal Parks, we exist to enhance, protect and preserve this fantastic Park for future generations to enjoy.
With your fantastic support, we’re able to reach out to make Hyde Park part of more people’s lives by raising funds for a wide variety of projects from wildlife conservation and landscape restoration, to community sport, education and art.
