Parks and Green Spaces

My Community brings you the latest tools, tips and ideas to help make your community a brilliant place to live.

Parks and Green Spaces have untold benefits for the community.

The resources in this hub have been designed to help people and groups who are interested in protecting, managing and improving their local parks and green spaces.

Parks and green spaces bring huge benefits to us as individuals and communities, improving both our physical and mental wellbeing. They bring cleaner air, a space to unwind or exercise, and a place for our community to come together and celebrate.

The resources in this hub will be particularly useful for anyone already involved or interested in becoming involved in their local park or green space - be it through setting up and running a project or volunteering.

The resources in this hub, including guides, templates, case studies and reports, will help you to:

  • Understand the benefits of community involvement in local parks and green spaces
  • Engage your local community, council and other stakeholders and get their support with issues related to your park or green space
  • Understand covenants and trusts to protect green spaces
  • Understand Community Asset Transfer for the land or the buildings in a green space
  • Communicate events and activities taking place in your park or green space
  • Generate income and bring in funding for your activities
