The Royal Parks charity, which manages Greenwich Park, has secured a £4.5m grant from The National Lottery for its ‘Greenwich Park Revealed’ project.
The Royal Parks and other funding partners will also contribute to this project, equating to total investment of £10.5m into the restoration of the park which is part of the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Andrew Scattergood, Chief Executive, The Royal Parks, said: “From a cluster of ancient 6th century tombs to the most spectacular Baroque landscape, Greenwich Park is a living museum rooted on the shores of maritime legend. But centuries of footfall have taken a toll and without urgently needed restoration, the park would become irreparably eroded and we would lose a gem in our nation's heritage.”
