Proposals put forward to restore London’s largest royal park

by | 20 Mar 24 | Commercial Landscaping, News

The Royal Parks charity, which manages Richmond Park- London’s largest royal park- has unveiled its proposals for a new café and enhancements to the surrounding landscape at Roehampton Gate in the park.

Proposals include improving the landscape in which the café sits in an effort to improve the site’s biodiversity.

The space will be transformed into an “environmentally excellent café” sympathetic to the landscape that surrounds it, says the charity.

The park’s current facilities are temporary structures put in place almost two decades ago after a fire destroyed the original buildings.

Additional improvements being made will also support increased footfall to the park, as well as offering a more family-friendly environment.

The charity will be holding three public engagement days to encourage local residents and park visitors to look at the plans and out forward questions or feedback.

Engagement days will take place 1-4pm, Thursday 4 April, 10am-1pm, Saturday 6 April at Roehampton Café, and 11am-2pm, Friday 12 April at Pen Ponds.

Visitors to the aforementioned days will have the opportunity to speak directly with members of the project team, including the Richmond Park team and The Royal Parks landscape team.
