Join us as we uncover how the Royal Parks were put to use between 1914 and 1919 – as vegetable patches, camouflage experiments, places of mourning and celebration, and much else.
From May 2017 to early 2020, we’ll be exploring the Royal Parks' First World War history through a programme of events, community and school activities and research.
Find out what happened to the men who went to war from the parks and the women who took on new roles at home. Discover how the Royal Parks’ wartime work influenced the rest of the world.
The project is a partnership between The Royal Parks Guild and The Royal Parks, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
