Parks and open spaces in Kensington and Chelsea

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, an Inner London borough, has responsibility for some of the parks and open spaces within its boundaries. Most of them are relatively small: many are the typical London square, built to service the houses around that square. Two of the larger open spaces are both of the "Magnificent Seven" cemeteries: at Brompton and Kensal Green. The parks are policed by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Parks Police.

Some of the other open spaces in the Borough are:

The area has the additional advantage of bordering Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

Little Wormwood Scrubs is one of 11 parks throughout Greater London chosen to receive money for redevelopment by a public vote in 2009. The park received £400,000 towards better footpaths, more lighting, refurbished public toilets and new play areas for children.[1]
