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 Authority developed a phased, 15 year masterplan: 'Gunnersbury 2026'. The phase 1 landscape improvements funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Big Lottery Fund are complete and 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. Key stakeholders are now working in partnership to develop plans for the next phases of the restoration.
