Benefits of public green space
Good quality parks and other public green spaces are essential for making cities great places to visit, work and live in. The many benefits of parks include improving health and reducing obesity, providing places for children to play and homes for wildlife, bringing communities together and beautifying the city. They also make a positive contribution to the environment by helping to keep the air clean and mitigating the growing impact of climate change.
Love Leeds Parks isn’t just about supporting formal parks. It aims to enhance other types of public green spaces like woodlands, public rights of way, flower beds, cemeteries, village greens, recreation grounds and nature reserves.
