What we've done so far...
Restoring and renewing the ornamental and drinking fountains across London’s eight Royal Parks
The Royal Parks Foundation (USA) was launched in 2011 with a wonderful gift of $1.25m from The Tiffany & Co Foundation which enabled us to launch Tiffany Across the Water – a fantastic project to restore drinking fountains and heritage water features in the eight Royal Parks.
Grosvenor Square September 11th Memorial Garden
Grosvenor Square in London, which is bordered on its west side by the U.S. Embassy, is home to a permanent memorial garden to those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001.
At the request of the families, the garden features British and American species planted side-by-side and contains a wooden pavilion where the names of all the UK citizens who lost their lives are listed.
The Royal Parks Foundation in London holds an endowment fund for the Garden, which is also supported by US Friends.
