DELIVERING PARKS FOR HEALTH AND WELLBEING
PLACES AND SPACES FOR YOU TO ENJOY and be healthy
The development of the Parks for Health Initiative has been driven by a desire to create Parks and Green Spaces which promote health and wellbeing. The Toolkit is an evidence-based, user friendly, online survey to assess Parks and Green Spaces for the health, wellbeing and the quality of the natural environment. We are proud to be associated with Parks for London who have participated in the refining and testing of the Toolkit.
we are committed to improving parks and green spaces for the health of our communities, for the environment and for our planet
At ‘Health Parks’** we have integrated Landscape, Health and the Environment into the ‘Parks for Health Initiative’.
OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
To help you start your journey, and make your park as healthy as it can be, we have created the Parks for Health Free Survey. This provides you with a snapshot of the current health status of your Park, and its potential for improvement. For more detailed assessments, you can do the Audit, Evaluation or Appraisal surveys; each providing increasing levels of detail, information and recommendations to optimise your Park for health and wellbeing.
