Regents Park2

London today has 35,000 acres of public green space equivalent to 40 per cent of it surface area. Much of this open space consists of more than 3,000 parks and gardens. Offering grass to walk on, trees to identify and wildlife to observe. London Parks are also memorials to the people who created them, worked in them, and wrote about them: to kings and queens; landscape gardeners and plant hunters; diary -writers and dualists.

In this third series of walks in parks and gardens to take place in April to June 2024, WLWU have selected eight very different open spaces including four parks in north London and four in south London. Some are in suburban locations such as Ilford and others are in congested urban areas like Paddington. Bearing in mind that that there are thousands of open spaces in London to be enjoyed, WLWU walkers can look forward to many more future series of Parks and Gardens!
