You may find that the unique thing about these venues is that Wandsworth and Westminster councils, unlike other councils, havent quite worked out how to square the circle of charging the organisers of 'paid for' events in their parks whilst at the same time not charging parkrun for regular free events.
My old club used to organise small monthly 10ks in Regents Park but from what I can recall there were a lot of restrictions, and I think we were only allowed to do it in the winter months. No harm in asking though.
Park run have come to me as they are looking into having a park run in Southwark park. We've got a number of people in our club that are happy to volunteer so we're in talks with them now. Curly if you'd like to join a club that doesn't cost anything then just turn up to www.londoncityrunners.com whenever you want. It's 6k each Tuesday 11k each Sunday.
The Royal Parks are ruled out apparently - from the London representative: "it has simply been impossible to get permission to use the parks".
Looks like I'll be running on my own then
