Gunnersbury Park W5 - Hounslow

A landscape park developed in the C18 by Princess Amelia and in the C19 by Baron Lionel de Rothschild. It became a public park in 1925. The Local Authorities have been addressing conservation issues affecting the designed landscape through implementation of a phased masterplan: 'Gunnersbury 2026'. Historic England have funded an updated masterplan to inform priorities for the next phases of works, subject to further public consultation. The majority of the park and buildings are now leased to a Community Interest Company (CIC) to oversee the long-term development and management of the park.
