Writing The Royal Parks into your will is a simple and easy way to support your local green space for future generations.

Legacies of all sizes can make a world of difference to the parks and help ensure London’s historic parkland thrives for future generations to enjoy.

If our parks hold a special place in your heart then please consider including a gift in your will.

How your gift can help

Your gift will help conserve the wildlife in the parks and breathe life into a busy city, protect their unique landscapes and heritage, and create exciting new community and education projects to inspire the next generation.

A legacy gift for ‘general purposes’ is the most useful because it can be used where the need is greatest at that time. However, you can also choose to leave a legacy gift to your favourite Royal Park.

Write The Royal Parks into your will

If you are planning to help the parks that you love by remembering them in your will – thank you.

Your legacy will ensure the Royal Parks continue to burst with life.

If you decide to leave a gift, we will:

  • Understand your loved ones always come first
  • Ensure that your gift is used in your favourite park should you request this
  • Value your decisions and respect your privacy
  • Use your gift well

"John was greatly fond of Isabella Plantation [Richmond Park] and spent very many happy hours there – the scents of the azaleas and rhododendrons were particularly special to him on account of his visual and hearing problems. I am sure he would be very pleased to know that part of his estate will be used to support Isabella Plantation and I’m sure that his funds would be used wisely."

Peter, John’s brother and executor

Add a codicil to your will

If you’ve already made a will you can still help The Royal Parks by adding a codicil, which effectively adds new provisions to your existing will. If you’d like to do this, you can download our codicil. If you would like to use this codicil we recommend that you consult your solicitor.
