We can all agree; it’s not the best time for getting out of town right now. This pandemic has changed our lives and sadly postponed the summer plans of most people. But, luckily, we can enjoy the natural wonders of the Forest City!

The sun is shining, the temperature is warm, and the days are beautiful out there! Why not explore our stunning green areas around the city? A simple visit to a city park can transport you to magic locations.

Spending time contemplating Thames River at the vast expanse of Springbank Park or just lying on the grass of beautiful Gibbons Park may be a great nature escape in the heart of London. Maybe a bike ride? How about a picnic? London parks are surely excellent options if you want to spend time with your family, gather a few friends or even enjoy your own company. You may even get a warm welcome from cute creatures, such as squirrels, chipmunks and geese!

Not everyone is lucky enough to be “quarantining” in a city surrounded by nature, right? There is always something to be discovered at London parks. Grab your mask and your hand sanitizers, and enjoy these beautiful spots! Don’t forget to keep your social distance!

Get inspired by these photographs from Gibbons Park (2A Grosvenor St) and Springbank Park (1085 Commissioners Rd W). Need more inspiration? Check out Fuser Laura Thorne’s “10 Best Parks In London” article from last year.

Now get out there and explore (safely)!
