Volunteer Rangers chatting to a park visitor

Volunteer Rangers in the Royal Parks

London’s eight Royal Parks offer 5,000 acres of historic, nature-rich parkland across the capital, and attract millions of people every single year. Visitors may also spot some friendly figures in orange – our Volunteer Rangers! 

First launched in 2019, the Volunteer Ranger service now operates in Bushy Park, Greenwich Park, Richmond Park, and The Regent’s Park. We have over 250 Volunteer Rangers roaming the parks and manning information points, working in pairs to welcome visitors and help them get the most out of their experience by sharing facts about the history and nature of the parks, tips on the best walking and cycling routes, and information about what the public can see and do in these unique green spaces.
