Development phase funding from the HLF/BIG “Parks
for People” fund has provided the opportunity for the Royal Parks to explore
proposals for the possible restoration of the Giant Steps and parterre banks of
Greenwich Park. They are the key
landscape features of the 17th century Baroque landscape envisioned
by Charles II, Sir William Boreman, and André Le Nôtre. However, they are now subdued elements within
the maritime Greenwich World Site and require action to ensure their survival
for future generations.
