Discover London’s countryside

London is blessed with many beautiful green spaces and countryside with almost half of the capital either green or blue.

There are thousands of parks, green spaces, woodlands, marshes, rivers, waterways, hills and nature reserves which offer opportunities for recreation and relaxation. We encourage everyone to enjoy the delights of London’s countryside where possible and work with a range of organisations to promote access to ‘London’s countryside’. We created and lead the GoParksLondon project, to map and bring together information on all London’s public green spaces. We are playing a central role in the Urban Tree Festival and London Rivers Week. We are also working towards providing more access to information on all London’s ‘great green routes’ intended for walking or wheeling.
