Reminder: Barbecues Banned in London Parks After Serious Fire Incident

Visitors to London parks are being reminded that barbecues are banned following a serious fire incident. The Royal Parks charity has issued a reminder that while picnics are always welcome, barbecues and fire lighting are strictly forbidden in all of its open spaces.

This ban aims to minimize the risk of accidental fires, such as the one that recently broke out in Richmond Park. Falling embers and ash can easily ignite dry grass, particularly during hot weather, posing a significant danger to park staff, visitors, and the environment. Fires can also destroy wildlife habitats and endanger the animals that inhabit these areas.

The Royal Parks charity also emphasised the importance of proper litter disposal. Visitors are urged to take their litter home or use the available bins to prevent fire hazards. Glass bottles, in particular, can significantly increase the risk of fire.

During the hot weather expected this weekend, the charity has reiterated that swimming is prohibited in any of its lakes and ponds, except for the Serpentine Lido in Hyde Park during its operational hours. This rule helps preserve sensitive natural habitats and prevents accidents.

The Royal Parks charity manages several well-known parks, including Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Greenwich Park, Primrose Hill, and The Regent’s Park.

Visitors are encouraged to enjoy these beautiful open spaces responsibly to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone and the protection of these vital green areas.
