About this Event

Our local parks and green spaces are special places for so many people - full of childhood memories, happy dog walks and family picnics.

But have you ever wondered why trees were planted where they are? Why the paths take such a long route? What makes your favourite view so beautiful? How the landscape you enjoy today came to exist and still survives? Join the Gardens Trust and London Parks and Gardens Trust for a free tour on 23rd November to find out more!
