During these times we must all change how we use and enjoy our local green spaces. This spring, whilst we have all been more limited in how we enjoyed our local parks, Fields in Trust Brought Parks to You! We took you on a virtual tour around the UK discovering beautiful parks and green spaces which are much loved and valued by their communities along the way.

Downloadable activities for kids

We recognise that young people have been particularly affected by the current situation with their local playgrounds not accessible. So, as part of Bringing Parks to You we put together a fun pack of park-related activities, to help children think about their favourite park, and to help parents with some home-schooling resources!

From designing a dream park to making faces and a fun parks wordsearch, we've plenty to help the kids be creative!

Park User Survey

As part of Bringing Parks to You we're interested in finding out a bit more about the park and green space habits of the nation, both in more normal times and as a result of recent changes. We've put together a brief survey - just ten questions, plus some quick general info about yourself - which should only take around five minutes to complete.

Park User Survey

Please add your voice and help us find out how we are all experiencing parks and green spaces.
