Rebecca Breen


I joined The Royal Parks Foundation in October 2014 as Digital Communications Manager. My role here involves looking after all our digital channels as well as creating engaging and inspiring content to share with our supporters.

The best thing about my job is… it’s really diverse! There are so many exciting projects and events going on in the parks and my role covers everything, which means that no day is ever the same. I’m also really lucky to be working in a beautiful building right in the middle of Hyde Park, surrounded by green space and wildlife.

My favourite Royal Park is... Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill - I’ve lived in Camden for over five years so that’s the one I know best but it’s also the prettiest.  You really can’t beat a Sunday morning walk up to the top of Primrose Hill, especially when the sun is shining, just to look out at the glorious view of the city.

My favourite fact about a Royal Park is... it amazes me that there are over 280 buildings and monuments in the Royal Parks, which shows just how enormous the Parks are.  One of my favourite buildings is the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park; it’s so iconic and is another amazing viewpoint of the city.

If I were a creature in the Parks, I would be... a deer! They’re grand and beautiful and get to roam around Richmond Park all day.

If I had a super-power, it would be… the power of invisibility, which I would only use for good, of course.
