This is a free map that was made to celebrate all of London's green and blue spaces. We have to charge £25 just to cover the costs associated with printing, storing, handling and shipping these large format prints. If you would like to have one professionally mounted onto foamboard or MDF, please get in touch.
This version of the London National Park City map is unfolded without the creases or the cardboard cover. You can lay it flat on a table or pin it to the wall.
Printed on the same press as Ordnance Survey maps, it is a large-format (950mm x 1270mm), folded map – custom drawn to highlight all the places to explore and printed with special Pantone ® inks.
A little bit about this map It shows London as the world’s first National Park City. The massive map includes all of the capital’s 3,000 parks plus woodlands, playing fields, nature reserves, city farms, rivers, canals and all the spaces that contribute to London’s parkland. Some of the most iconic walks through and around London are drawn, such as the London Loop and Capital Ring, along with symbols marking places to swim outdoors, climb hills, pitch a tent or go kayaking. It even shows front and back gardens, but not any buildings!
In 2016 Urban Good set out to raise enough money to fund the production of a printed map that was big enough and beautiful enough to inspire people to get out and make more of their National Park City. Our hunch was that most people would be surprised to learn that nearly half of London is green and blue. Now you know where all those spaces are.
Connecting children and adults to nature, experiencing the benefits of green and blue space, finding play spaces and sports pitches, seeking out new trails, cycle paths, learning about biodiversity and where to look for all the above is why we made this map.
On the reverse is a giant atlas of London with ideas for explorations and information graphics to tell you more about the park. Don't forget to turn it over!
