This app maps and provides detailed descriptions of the history and ambience of a large number of London's finest green spaces. It's not just the main parks that are covered here, but myriad smaller and lesser known gardens, squares, secret green boltholes, cemeteries, commons, and urban farms. Whenever you feel in need of a breath of fresh air, a moment's repose, a wander around lawns and flowers, a playground, or a place to eat your lunch al fresco, turn to this app.
One of the incredible things about London is just how much green space there is here. Wherever you are it's not far to find a place to sit in the shade of a mighty plane tree. This app will help you discover London's secret gardens and more about the places you thought you knew. It's an essential for those who love picnics, flowers, boating, tennis, cricket, kite-flying, dog walking, gardens, and lying back in the long grass. What's even more amazing is how much of this wonderful green space is free to enter.
The app is being regularly built upon and updated. If you have a suggestion of a place you'd like to see included, get in touch.
