One of the positive impacts of the pandemic has been the increase in both the use of and appreciation for local green spaces. Whether for exercise, relaxation or socialising these green spaces have provided a lifeline to many, from all parts of society, throughout the past 9 months.
There is an opportunity to capitalise on this newfound public enthusiasm and to increase both the range and quality of our public green spaces, especially in urban areas where people have historically not had as ready access. The benefits of doing this would be manyfold, including public physical and mental health, community building and environmental improvements.
