From the grass roots, up

Community involvement is what brings our parks to life.

There are hundreds of groups using their local park to create community gardens, run walking groups, host therapeutic activities, bringing people together.

We provide a helping hand to these groups by supporting them to work with their landowners, secure funding, expand their activities and everything in-between.
