The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Parks Police was a body of constables responsible for policing the parks and open spaces of the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. In 2013, it merged with the Hammersmith and Fulham Parks Constabulary to form the Parks Police Service.

Members of the constabulary were sworn in as constables under article 18 of the Greater London Parks and Open Spaces Order 1967,[1] meaning they had powers of a constable to deal with bye-laws relating to parks and open spaces under their control. They were not police officers and were not afforded the same powers and responsibilities as police constables.

In 2008, the constabulary made 30 arrests, mainly for possession of drugs, minor thefts and antisocial behaviour.[2]
