📢Update for our visitors 📢

From mid-September we will be introducing car parking charges to the main car park at Gunnersbury Park.

Cars parking at Gunnersbury will be charged £1 per hour with a maximum stay of 4 hours. Charges will apply at all times. Visitors can pay either via an app or using a credit/debit card at the machines on site.

Blue Badge holders will not be charged, or have a time limit on their stay, and can park either in the main car park or in the disabled car park next to Gunnersbury Park Museum.

All net income raised will be used to support and maintain Gunnersbury Park & Museum. These funds are all the more essential following the effects of Covid-19 and the loss of the café on our income, and will help ensure that Gunnersbury survives and thrives.

For more updates on the expected start date please check the Gunnersbury website and our social media channels.

From our park: more closely related to wasps than flies, the Social Pear Sawfly favours the leaves of the Rose family for its larvae.

Here you can see them in action on the branches of a hawthorn, they surround themselves in a web and eat their way along the branch until they pupate. Not usually a pest, they provide a food source for small birds and a place for parasitic wasps to lay their eggs!

Today my wife and 10m old daughter joined me for a walk in the park. As soon as she parked, a piece of bark fell off onto the car. No big damage in the car, but it could have fallen on my daughter. There has been reports of bad looking trees and a few of them have fallen lately. Please have them check out
