Wellbeing week at Gunnersbury

This week Gunnersbury is celebrating wellbeing.

Access to parks, access to green spaces and access to creative pursuits are all important for our physical and mental wellbeing.

Over lockdown we've welcomed increasing numbers to the park, and we’ve heard from you how vital the park has been.

David Bowler, CEO of Gunnersbury Estate (2026) CIC said “as a recent visitor put it “parks are currently our exercise, our social lives, our therapy” and I couldn’t have put it better myself. We know we are so lucky that Gunnersbury can provide this for us.”

Particularly at this time of lockdown we want to share the best of what you can experience at Gunnersbury with activities for both the body and mind!

We’ve teamed up with Yoga Gunnersbury Park, Ealing Eagles Running Club and Brentford FC Community Sports Trust to give you some ideas on how to you can enjoy and get some exercise in Gunnersbury Park, which we’ll be sharing throughout the week. We’ve also created some videos from the park and museum! https://www.visitgunnersbury.org/news-blog/our-work/wellbeing-week-at-gunnersbury/

First up enjoy some drone footage of Gunnersbury Park filmed on the last day before lockdown - all the way back in March!

Our #PlantOfTheWeek is Cyclamen hederifolium, a shade loving woodlander flowering in autumn & winter.

It’s common name is Sowbread because they are a favourite food of swine. This species of Cyclamen is very tolerant of dry shade & will thrive in soil rich in leaf mould.

The delayed Le Mans 2020 took place last month and this atmospheric shot by Ealing Studios photographer Roy Gough shows us what Le Mans used to look like!

It must have been asked a thousand times, but when are all the metal fences coming down?
The boats will be back on the lake every day during half term - 10-3 - take some oats for the ducks and have a great time!
can you tell us when the tennis courts will reopen?
Duck Pond Market is back in the park this Saturday! Find us off Popes Lane, at the front of the Museum... free parking!
Lost dog!! Her name is Bamboo! Gunnersbury area! The dog has managed to escape from The garden! Her name is bamboo and she doesn’t have a collar on She is very friendly! .. she is a black cockapoo with a white patch on her chest!! Please call if you see her! 07507739049
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
Gunnersbury Park & Museum, the Italian Gardens, and the famous people who used to live nearby, as well as the Airstream drinks caravan!, all feature in the latest episode on Acton by Love Your London.
Can you please let me know when the tennis courts at Gunnersbury Park will be open again. With the government opening gyms and leisure facilities around the country it would be good to know when our local park facilities will once again be operating. The date given for gyms is 25th July.
Apparently there are sharp objects in here... It has been cornered off for a long time, yet access and danger for both dogs and children is easy.... Surely it wouldn't take too long for one of the team to sort this out & make it safe again ?
This news in About Ealing, is very sad. The bowling green hardly needs any management other than maybe a bit of a mow.. Easy to social distance for the older members who were desperately looking forward to this exercise.. Seems rather mean to not allow them access...Surely you can reconsider your position on this?
Is the car park pay and display?
