This is where we pull back the curtain to explore the developments, technology and events influencing local authority management of parks now and in to the future.
Every park is unique and shaped by its local communities and the people who visit, care for and own them. Each reflects aspects of the borough it sits in, and all are waiting to surprise and welcome you.
Explore our borough maps to find parks and park friends groups near you.
Our articles are all about the characters, sweat and tears that go into looking after our green spaces. You'll also find details of the fun, the value and the benefits to be found when visiting.
Our pages allow you to explore what's in your borough or compare how your local council's green spaces compare with others.
Children have been staying away from our parks and green spaces during the Covid pandemic. The finding comes from an online study of 8 to 15 year olds for Natural England. While this age group care for nature, they have become cut off from it, raising concerns for their physical and mental health. It's not clear whether fear of the virus or an increase in older park users has caused this displacement.
