Managing the Royal Parks is about balancing the needs of different users, preserving the environment and protecting wildlife. The Royal Parks Regulations set out a code of behaviour for the park environment, helping to ensure that they can be enjoyed by everyone. You can find out more about our regulations here.

The deadline for comments is Thursday 12 April 2018. The Royal Parks will review all comments received before taking any next steps. Any change to The Royal Parks Regulations requires Parliamentary consent and will be subject to the pressures of the Parliamentary timetable.

Thank you in advance for your feedback, which will help us to ensure that we protect and preserve our 5,000 acres of historic parkland and provide an enjoyable experience for the millions of people who visit the Royal Parks each year.
