Eleanor Viita


I joined The Royal Parks Foundation in January 2016 as the Corporate Partnerships Manager.  I work within the Development team to manage and grow our portfolio of corporate partnerships, raising vital income for projects across the Parks.

The best thing about my job is… Showing our partners the amazing things that we’ve achieved with their support, whether that’s planting a swath of new bulbs or taking care of the pelicans in St James’s Park.  I also love the range of projects that I get to be a part of – everything from the Half Marathon to hedgehogs!

My favourite Royal Park is... Richmond Park. It’s wonderful to have such a wild green space within London, and it’s one of my favourite places to run and cycle.

My favourite fact about a Royal Park is... there are over 170,00 trees across all 8 Royal Parks.

If I were a creature in the Parks, I would be... a newt, because amphibians are a really important part of the park's ecosystem.

If I had a super-power, it would be… super strength.
