Cycling on weekends is back
We are pleased to welcome cycling back to Richmond Park on weekends as well as week days, from Saturday 1st August. We’ve now removed all temporary cycling suspensions, following their introduction in March to support the Government’s social distancing guidelines, maintain public safety and prevent serious congestion at park gates. Please be aware we have many new park visitors in our parks, including new cyclists and families, so do take care when cycling and show consideration and kindness to others

Petersham Playground is now open.
