London is a city blessed with a variety of beautiful open spaces. From tiny pocket parks to sprawling woodlands, historic squares to hidden courtyards, at times we can take for granted the spaces we encounter as we duck and dive the streets of our fair capital.

But Public London, a new exhibition at New London Architecture, is taking the time to celebrate the history, future and importance of London’s public spaces. They are asking you, the Londoners who know their city back to front, to share their personal favourites.

Is it your local park where you picnic with the family? The quiet square where you cram down your lunchtime sandwich? The community garden you pass on your way to work? Give your favourite spot the recognition it deserves by sharing a picture (or just your words) with us via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #PublicLondon. You’re also welcome to comment on this article.

Team Londonist are putting their votes in for Bunhill Fields, Postman’s Park, Granary Square, Bushy Park and Wanstead Flats. Which is your favourite?

Public London exhibition is at New London Architecture until 11 July 2015.
