We still have warm summer weather, with birds, butterflies and colourful flowers in the park. Do visit the park to enjoy the gardens and woodlands, or come for some healthy exercise and have a coffee afterwards. Please keep an eye on our events page for activities in 2023. You can join our Blue Badge guided history tours, bird walks, tree walks or a chance to hQuiear about the park's fungi. Visit our occasional pop-up stalls in the Café Yard during school holidays and half terms, with spotter activities for children and sometimes a sale of plants from the Holland Park nursery.

"The Friends of Holland Park exists to save the countryside! (A twist which might surprise someone who thought it was an urban park-tout court). There's bees where honeysuckle grows, foxes, rabbits, robins, crows, tadpoles in the early spring-come autumn there's blackberrying.
There's the spring art exhibition by our members who will make you very welcome at the Private View, and carols in the winter too. But Holland Park's extremely small-fifty acres all in all-and very vulnerable to short-sighted pressures. Join us and help support, improve, defend this precious jewel. "
The 22 hectare (55 acre) park, owned by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, offers sports facilities, playing fields, children’s play and adventure areas, dog walking, an Ecology Centre, formal gardens and woodland walks, the Japanese Kyoto Garden, art exhibitions, rooms for hire, a restaurant and cafeteria, and a youth hostel. It hosts the annual summer season of Opera Holland Park.
The remains of Holland House, bombed in the last war, is a conserved listed building, having been the home of the Earls of Holland and then Ilchester. The park is within the Holland Park Conservation Area and is an Area of Metropolitan Importance.
