Fields in Trust have been protecting parks and green spaces for over 90 years. We work with landowners to establish legally binding commitments which safeguard these spaces forever.
Whilst Fields in Trust protection is an agreement with the owner of the land, you can still get involved by advocating for protection for your local green spaces.
One Small Thing
This week we're asking you to research protection of your park. Firstly, put your postcode into our Fields Finder to see if your local green space is already protected. If it isn't, try to find out who owns the park, who your local Councillors are and who your local MP is - these are all people you can encourage to champion protection of the space.
