National Park Cities
London National Park City, put simply, is a movement to improve life in London. The London National Park City Foundation is working with residents, visitors and partners to:
- Enjoy London`s great outdoors more
- Make the city greener, healthier and wilder
- Promote London`s identity as a National Park City
The London National Park City wants more bird songs, ultimate Frisbee, hill-rolling, tree climbing, cycling, hedgehogs, volunteering, sharing, outdoor play, kayaking, clean air, otters, greener streets, outdoor learning, ball games, outdoor art and hilltop dancing in the city. Why not?
Having successfully campaigned to make London a national Park City, the national Park City Foundation has been established to bring the idea to life.
They`re doing this by:
- Leading inspiring campaigns
- Growing our movement
- Supporting and coordinating action
As well as being a movement, the London National Park City is a place you can explore, a vision you can share and a community you can join. It`s a celebration of everything that has been done to make London`s landscape, ecology and culture enjoyable. It is a large-scale and long-term challenge to improve life in the city through many small and achievable actions.
Individuals, families, groups and organisations can make their own contributions to the London National Park City`s aims, either formally or informally. The Mayor of London has committed to protecting and increasing green spaces and is providing funding to help with planting. you can contribute by simply making your part of the city a little wilder or enjoying a new part of the city`s great outdoors. The more people who do these things the better.
