Volunteer Ranger and a member of the public

Volunteer Rangers in the Royal Parks

London’s eight Royal Parks offer 5,000 acres of historic, nature-rich parkland across the capital, and attract millions of people every single year. Visitors may also spot some friendly figures in orange – our Volunteer Rangers! 

First launched in 2019, the Volunteer Ranger service has now expanded to Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Greenwich Park and The Regent’s Park. Our 250 Volunteer Rangers roam around the parks, working in pairs to welcome visitors and help them get the most out of their experience by sharing facts about the history and nature of the parks, tips on the best walking or cycling routes, and information about what the public can see and do in these unique green spaces.
