Community cohesion

Our parks and open spaces give the opportunities for families and communities to get together.

Organised events and activities on many of our sites help to being communities together but informal activities such as dog walking and cycling (where allowed) enable like minded people to share their pastimes.

Most of our sites offer volunteering opportunities from regular volunteer days which help us to maintain the site in tip top condition to ad hoc seasonal events such as thinning trees and welcoming visitors and providing site information. Our volunteers provide an invaluable service and give us a direct connection with the local community and park users.

Where we have buildings on our sites we will, where possible, open them up to be used as a community resource.

Find out more about our volunteering opportunities.

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


In 2021/22, more than 1.9 million people visited our spaces, whether this was to take part in organised community activities or informally, such as spending time with families or walking the dog.
