The Royal Parks is a set of lands in Greater London, originally owned by the British royal family. In 1851 the parks became public spaces and thereby freely accessible to all citizens.
The Royal Parks are managed by an agency of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. They consist of overall eight parks including Greenwich Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Its icon was developed in 1996 — a crest consisting of leaves which are reassembling a crown. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II approved the icon within a day.
