100 New Parks Planned as Part of the Levelling Up Parks Fund

100 new parks are planned in urban areas with £9 million of Government funding as part of the levelling up parks fund. The aim of the project is to establish new parks in areas most deprived of open public space.

Greg Clark, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, said:

“Parks and green spaces are at the heart of our communities, providing sanctuary from the bustling streets of our towns and cities and spaces for people to relax and come together.

Over the past few years, the importance of spending time with loved ones and getting outdoors has become even more apparent, and this latest government funding will help people living in urban areas do just that. I look forward to seeing the new parks come to life and making a real difference to people’s daily lives for years to come.”
