Gunnersbury Park and Museum is jointly owned by Hounslow and Ealing Councils. The councils have set up, and jointly own, the Gunnersbury Estate (2026) Community Interest Company (CIC). The CIC runs the park and museum on a day-to-day basis for the benefit of the community.
The CIC is also responsible for ensuring Gunnersbury is fit for the future, including the preservation of its rich history for future generations to enjoy. Over 75 hectares of parkland are home to two Georgian mansions (Grade II and Grade II* listed) as well as many other historically significant buildings. Gunnersbury museum contains more than 40,000 objects which reflect the history of this part of west London.
Planning for the future
A 15-year masterplan, called ‘Gunnersbury 2026’, guides our work. We aim to transform Gunnersbury into a sustainable, high quality public space that serves the local community and beyond. Our development plans will create a diverse and lively mix of culture, heritage, events, sports and recreational activities.
The first phase of the plan included the renovation of the museum and restoration of the park’s historic features. Over £21m has been invested so far, including two major grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Parks for People Fund, and this phase is almost complete.
The next phase of works is the transformation of the sports facilities within the park. As well as improving the existing courts and pitches, a brand-new sports hub will provide fantastic indoor facilities.
