The parks for health assessment
The vision for the development of landscape based Health Assessment Models started in 2008, with a desire to create landscapes which were good for people, alongside those which protected valuable wildlife, and increased biodiversity.
The Parks for Health Assessment is an online survey which can also be accessed via an Apple or Android device. It can be applied across a range of types and scales of Parks and Green Spaces, from Pocket Parks to Country Parks and Nature Reserves.
Within the Model, you are invited to answer a series of questions about the Park and its use. The questions are identified within five Primary Health Criteria; Community Initiatives, Accessibility, Mental Wellbeing, Physical Activity and Environmental Factors. On submitting the completed questionnaire, the assessment model analyses your answers to provide you with a bespoke report of your Park. Helpful videos and Sample Reports can be accessed through the links below.
Depending upon the assessment selected, the reports include charts, tables, lists of improvements and new opportunities/interventions within each of the Key Health Criteria. Lists of elements are also identified, pertinent to avoidable medical conditions; Obesity, Non-communicative diseases, mental ill-health, and conditions caused by environmental risk factors.
