Richmond Park closed on Sunday 9th February 2020


Storm Ciara and Royal Parks closures.

Due to current weather warnings all eight Royal Parks will be closed on Sunday 9 February as a precautionary measure.

In liaison with tree experts and the Royal Parks Health and Safety team they have made this decision to ensure the safety of all park users including vehicle users and cyclists.

The Royal Parks are home to over 170,000 trees spread across 5,000 acres, with a significant population of ancient and veteran trees that are vulnerable to high winds.

Royal Parks will be monitoring the forecast closely over the next 24 hours and if there are any changes they will communicate these via this website and twitter account @theroyalparks

All parks will reopen on Monday, as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
