Parks in London

London has over 1000 local parks and green spaces, so there should always be somewhere nearby for you to take the kids to have a run round or play a game of ball. Many of the local parks and some greens have a playground as well.

Some of the larger parks have a lot more to offer, Battersea Park for example has a small Zoo and Clissold Park has a wildlife pond and Stately home.

Check out the list of parks below to find out what facilities are available and if you have any recommendations please let us know.

There are 1107 parks in London, so we have grouped them together into the regions of London. See the links below to browse the parks in each region.
