Public Parks & Gardens and our Green Spaces are among the most important places for Londoners and inded they form part of our heritage. Infinitely variable, large, small and often intimate places that can be enjoyed on many levels. For just sitting and enjoying the scenery, for sport and children’s play, for gardening and horticulture, for walking the dog, for sustaining our wildlife, Parks provide it all.

London in Bloom has for several years run a competition to find the best, safest and most popular Park.

We have several categories from small to large from conservation area to Country Park, so something for everyone. So why not nominate your local Park or get your local authority to enter the competition.

Parks also offer residents and local people the opportunity to get involved in their management & development, or getting involved directly.

Tree Collections & Arboreta, high end horticulture, Conservation areas, wildlife meadows and of course many have local communitiesa caring for them. So if you have a cemetery, crematoria whether an open or closed site why not enter.
