Parks in a time of crisis

World Urban Parks have issued a statement about the role parks can play in times of a public health crisis like the one we are all experiencing now.

The Parks Alliance Chairman Matthew Bradbury commented that all of those who support, maintain and enjoy the UK’s parks and green spaces will wholeheartedly agree with the statement highlighting the importance of outdoor spaces during this time.

The statement goes on to say how we have faced crisis moments before including the recent floods. However, this public health crisis will highlight the absolute importance of connecting with nature as a way of coping with the social isolation and distancing we all will face during the next six months.

With judicious and considered planning and understanding of your local Council’s guidelines, your local park, open spaces, streets or even your backyard should provide the daily opportunity for individuals to spend time in the outdoors, even if it is only to sit and contemplate life for 30 minutes.

The value of the local park, the local street will provide moments of stress release and additional health benefits and these are all extremely important in maintaining the body’s immune system.

The TPA also advised that following the most recent guidelines from the UK government was the best course of action – which can be found here.
