We are asking park friends groups, or other community groups associated with parks and green spaces in London, to help populate the Big Green London Map.
GoParksLondon is a campaign to promote London’s 4,000 parks and green spaces and the friends and community groups behind them. The map is promoted widely and give greater visibility to lots of less-well-known parks and green spaces as well as the friends and community groups who help improve, maintain, and advocate for parks.
Please note that our terms of reference do not allow us to host political or campaigning material. If your group is political or campaigning in nature and you are interested in joining, please contact [email protected] to discuss your registration.
How will the map listings for each park be created?
Park friends and community groups help create listings because they know most about what’s happening in the park and its facilities and features. Friends and community groups’ websites and social media pages are central to the listings. This is great for members of the public because they can find out lots about the park and how to get involved.
Some information in the listing will be supplied by organisations other than the friends or community group, for example, we link to information held by GIGL (the London Environment Records Centre) on biodiversity and historical information held by the London Gardens Trust.
The views expressed in the social media feeds we link to from GoParksLondon are solely those of the authors and we cannot be held responsible for the views expressed in those feeds. However if you have any concerns about any social media feeds which we link to on GoParksLondon, please contact us at [email protected].
What will the map listing for my park look like?
Each park listing will appear as a web page with its own unique web address. See Trent Country Park for a good example of what your page could look like.
What do I need to do to create a listing for my park on the map?
It’s very simple!
Find your park on the map, click on it and then use the Get Started button under 'Are you a friends group...' to register your contact details on behalf of your local friends or community group.
Within approximately 7 days we will send you a link to a personalised web form.
Fill out and submit that form. It will be checked by our team.
Your park listing will be published on the map. We will upload new listings at least once a month but usually more frequently. You can submit the form at anytime but it may take a few weeks for it to be published.
