Businesses like yours help keep the Royal Parks beautiful and bursting with life every day. Last year 587 amazing corporate volunteers from fourteen companies spent 28 days helping out in the parks.

They managed meadows in Kensington Gardens, planted bulbs in The Regent's Park and cleared rhododendron in Richmond Park – to name a few!

Why we need your help

It costs £36m a year to run the eight Royal Parks, so that they can remain open for our 77 million visits each year. With limited funds we rely on the valuable time and energy devoted by teams of volunteers to make improvements to the parks possible that otherwise could not happen!

Opportunities in the Royal Parks

We offer a wide range of corporate volunteering activities on our Park Days, you can get your hands dirty planting bulbs, have a go at building a bird box, or help us to manage one of our beautiful meadows – the list goes on! And with eight Royal Parks stretching across London there's likely to be one just a stone’s throw from your office.

We can host groups of between 8 – 40 individuals, for either half a day or a full day, and no prior experience is needed to participate.
