In particular we aim to:
Our parks provide an unparalleled range of opportunities for recreation, play and sport, health and well-being, attractive and safe travel routes, nature appreciation, education and heritage and community get-togethers.
They support eco-systems, helping with water management and air cooling.
They are crucial for our wildlife and biodiversity.
The London Friends of Greenspaces Network is growing fast. Parks Friends Groups advocate for improvements, new attractions or simply for the park’s continued care. They undertake voluntary action themselves in partnership with the council. They also organise events for people to enjoy their local space, promoting historical and ecological knowledge of the space and providing opportunities for the community to come together. They also play an important role in enabling people to capture the health benefits of parks.

The Big Green London map consortium comprises: CPRE London, London Friends of Green Spaces Network, Greenspace Information for Greater London, Revolution Consultancy and Design; and National Park City Foundation.
CPRE London is a regional branch of the national environmental charity, Campaign to Protect Rural England. The CPRE London branch campaigns to save Green Belt, Metropolitan Open Land and other green spaces within Greater London, and to make our capital city a better place to live for everyone.
Greenspace Information for Greater London CIC (GiGL) is the capital’s environmental records centre – we mobilise, curate and share data that underpin our knowledge of London’s natural environment. We enable our stakeholders to make informed decisions in policy and practice.
London Friends of Greenspaces Network (LFGN) are the network for the 600+ local Friends Groups and borough-wide Friends Forums for public green spaces across London. We share information, good practices and work to ensure parks and green spaces are adequately resourced. We also actively promote the development of strong Friends Forums for every London borough.
The London Parks & Gardens Trust is a registered charity, affiliated to the national Gardens Trust, that champions all of London's historic green space in the planning process based on knowledge which we cultivate through extensive research by volunteers and capture in our Inventory, made available to the public through London Gardens Online. We also celebrate the beauty, horticulture, history, ecology and value of green space, including through our main fundraising event Open Garden Squares Weekend.
The consortium's digital and geospatial solutions partner, providing community and map-driven solutions delivered through their Forward Movement Platform, enabling smarter and more engaging interactions.
