Delivering our aims

As well as improving the management and biodiversity of our parks and open spaces, our sustainable approach continues to increase participation in activities. Close working with our communities and local groups have enabled our parks to continue to develop as community resources and a focus for local activities.

Our performance is reported each year in our Annual Report and Accounts.

In the year 2014/15 over

  • 44,000 people took part in activities on our sites, an 8% increase on last year
  • 7,500 visited our sites on a school visit and
  • 9,500 took part in health activities

We also benefitted from the fantastic contribution of over 8,000 volunteer days up by more than 50% from the previous year. Thank you.

It is a privilege to work for an organisation that puts communities at the heart of its work. The knowledge that I am helping to provide a better environment, especially in areas where open green space is in short supply, is what motivates and inspires me.
