5 reasons you should come on a botanical tour of Wembley Park this National Park City Week
As part of the Mayor of London’s National Park City week, Wembley Park is celebrating our rich green heritage with a series of FREE exciting public tours.
Inspired by a greener and healthier London, around one quarter of Wembley Park’s regeneration project will be public open space for everyone to enjoy. To give you a little insight into the past, present and future of Wembley Park’s greenery, we will be hosting three botantical tours. From our leafy origins as Wemba Lea to the flourishing rooftop gardens and terraces, you’ll discover where the once concrete landscape is heading, and what plans are in store of the future.
As a Trustee of the National Park City Foundation and Head of Masterplanning and Design at Wembley Park, Julian Tollast will be guiding you through the leafy journey of Wembley Park.
