London National Park City Week celebrates the city’s unique green spaces

London’s unique green spaces, trees, waterways and natural environment will be celebrated as part of the London National Park City Week, which runs from 21-29 July.

National Park City Week is part of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s plan to help make London a National Park City in 2019.

A host of events will take place across the city throughout London National Park City Week. Londoners will get the chance to explore the city with walks, talks, explorations, family activities and more.

Events include walks and explorations to discover some of London’s lesser known green gems, footpaths and waterways; family activities in parks across the city; encounters with urban wildlife from butterflies to bats; opportunities to help look after local green spaces and find out what you can do at home; and boat trips, bike rides, tree trails and more.

The Mayor is working with the National Park City Foundation and other partners towards the aim of declaring London a National Park City in 2019. As part of this, Londoners will get the opportunity to improve and green their local neighbourhoods.

  1. Reblogged this on Times and Tides of a Beachwriter and commented:
    Cities are here to stay stay and they don’t need to be escaped from – people need and like to live in them. In some ways they are more evironmentally friendly than countryside as residents are not dependent on motor cars. This project should inspire us to make all cities as green as possible.
