A website that allows Londoners to search for parks in their area hopes to become a 'green TripAdvisor' for the capital.
The Parklife London app, developed by the City of London's charity the City Bridge Trust, allows individual users and community organisations to add to its database and upload information about local events and projects.
Creators hope it will become self-sustaining if enough people contribute to the project.
I really hope that Londoners will put this tool to good use and share their hidden gems with others.
Covering 32 boroughs across London, Parklife London has the potential to become our capital's Green Trip Adviser.'
– David Farnsworth, Chief Grants Officer of City Bridge Trust
Four parks across the capital are celebrating today thanks to a funding boost from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund.
The cash will help local authorities regenerate some of London’s most dilapidated but popular inner city open spaces: West Hackney Recreation Ground (£690,700), Alexandra Road Park in Camden (£1.5m), Eastcote House Gardens in Hillingdon (£1.3m) and Langton Gardens in Hornchurch (£1.9m).
The awards have been made under the Parks for People programme using Lottery funds to support the regeneration, conservation and increased enjoyment of public parks - aiming to improve the local environment and put parks back at the heart of community life.
