Blog 26 Why do we use the Parks?

As we plan for the future and the financial challenges we now face, we’re looking at how we can improve people’s experiences in The Parks even further. The Royal Parks are hoping to analyse the interests of longstanding visitors who have recently discovered The Royal Parks as a result of lockdown, to learn more about visitors’ interests, preferred methods of accessing information and behaviour in The Parks.

With that in mind, The Royal Parks have been tasked with producing an Interpretation and Wayfinding Strategy (to be implemented from April 2021) that aims to present information about and in The Royal Parks in a more consistent, coherent and engaging manner. They want to do justice to the interests of longstanding visitors and newcomers who have recently discovered our sites as a result of lockdown. They are aiming to analyse results both across all the parks and by individual park

To that end, an online visitor experience survey has been produced, to better understand our audiences and their need. This month The Royal Parks invite you to complete a survey that will shape the future of The Parks for years to come. Please take five minutes and share your thoughts. The survey is part of The Royal Parks’ Interpretation and Wayfinding Strategy Development. It is available until the end of November. Please, click on the link so we may be able to hear your opinions:
