A smart, connected Park is built on reliable data.
Sensors all over the Park are helping us make decisions, monitor the Park’s progress and connect visitors to the area.
Intel’s Collaborative Research Institute has developed 20 climate sensors for the Park, measuring temperature, humidity and pressure. Gathering this data will help us connect how different areas of the Park are used by the local environment, contributing to local development decisions into the future.
Air quality sensors
Alongside Intel and Engie, we are measuring air quality in the Park to help paint a live picture of the air around us. This will ensure we make the right decisions to tackle London’s air pollution problem through new developments, improved transport connections and providing green space.
15 new bat sensors, developed by Intel’s Collaborative Research Institute, are being tested on the Park. They help to ensure that the Park’s bat conservation programme is effective, as well as connecting visitors and residents to wildlife around the Park. In the future, these sensors will be used for bat conservation around the world, especially in urban spaces, making sure that urban developments have a positive impact on bat populations.

The Park has free Wi-Fi for visitors across all 560 acres of the Park, making it the largest public Wi-Fi network of its kind in the world. Apart from giving visitors free access to the internet, the service helps us understand how different areas of the Park are used by different groups of people. Understanding this ensures that the Park is managed in the best way possible and helps us to improve the service we provide to both visitors and residents.
To sign into the Park's free WiFi, simply select it from the list of available networks. You will then be asked to provide your name and email address as part of a short registration process.
