The Government is not being asked to designate London a National Park City. Londoners are invited to turn this vision into a reality. By working together to gain the support of the majority of London’s 654 electoral wards and the Mayor of London, we will have the legitimate democratic support to officially declare the capital a National Park City.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has given his backing and 346 wards across 33 boroughs have declared their support so far.
We are delighted to announce that London will become a National Park City in 2019!
By working together we can inspire Londoners to make our city radically more green, healthy, wild, resilient, prosperous and enjoyable.
Help to make the London National Park City a success by doing one or more of these things:
Get Outside - We believe that more people exploring, playing, making and learning outdoors, more often, is good for us all. In the coming months we’ll be sharing on this website lots of ideas for getting outside. Share your own experiences with us using #GetOutside #NationalParkCity and get involved in National Park City Week.
Get Growing - From our balconies to our streets, let’s make our city radically more green, beautiful and wild. Help to make the majority of London physically green and blue. This can be achieved by, on average, every Londoner swapping one square metre of grey concrete for a mini meadow. Either on your own or in a group, get planting and share your greener and wilder places with us using the hashtag #NationalParkCity. We’ll be sharing tips, advice and opportunities on this website in coming months.
