Parks and Open Spaces

Our local environment matters. Our experience tells us that people who live in places that are greener, cleaner and safer live healthier and happier lives. We believe that everyone should have a say in how their neighbourhood is planned, developed and managed. Groundwork South protects and improves parks and open spaces for the benefit of local communities.

We work directly with local communities, government, landowners and other partners to design and implement improvements in parks and open spaces, safeguarding them for future generations. Every year we will improve 650 hectares of open spaces, benefiting 35,000 people per year.

Britain was the first country in the world to recognise the importance of urban green spaces and created the first public parks by connecting business and municipal leaders with the concerns of local communities. With your help we will revive that pioneering spirit and protect green spaces in your area for future generations.
