The City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust, announced yesterday the launching of a mobile map for locating parks and green spaces in London.

The organisation launched London’s first green space mobile map on Thursday to encourage Londoners to “unearth hidden green gems” in the capital, including here in Redbridge.

The interactive map, first launched in 12 inner London boroughs, has been extended to 20 boroughs throughout greater London, now enabling residents of Redbridge to better explore parks and green spaces in their vicinity. Accessible on a smartphone or tablet, Parklife London geolocates you, bringing up all the parks near your location.

The idea is that the tool becomes sustained and developed by Londoners, for Londoners.

It includes a simple process for individual users and community organisations to upload locations, event and projects.

Already a number of community groups and charities like the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s London Wetland Centre, London Play and Kenwood House are involved.

David Farnsworth, chief grants officer of City Bridge Trust said: “Parklife London aims to help residents of Redbridge find, use and share details of their local green spaces.

“I really hope that all Londoners will put this tool to good use and share their hidden green gems with others.

“Parklife London has the potential to become our capital’s green Trip Adviser.”
