London Parks & Gardens Trust aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of parks, squares, community gardens, cemeteries, churchyards – all those places that form London's open space network.
Trust members – amateurs and professionals – provide and enjoy lectures, walks, day trips, children's programmes, a newsletter and journal, research and an inventory of historic green spaces.

Information on over 2,500 spaces across Greater London is now available at www.londongardensonline.org.uk. This information is derived from the Inventory of London's Green Spaces of Local Historic Interest, one of the Trust's biggest projects. It was researched with the valuable participation of many people.
The aim is to appeal to a broad range of users - from casual garden visitors to local residents, local historians, students, schoolchildren and teachers, planning authorities, architects, landscape designers, estate agents as well as tourists and visitors to London.
