National Federation of Parks & Green Spaces
Government’s Statement about Parks and Coronavirus Survey.
Thanks for the incredible response we received to the survey, requested by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. Over 840 groups across the UK provided really helpful information about the situation with their local green spaces.

A summary report of the survey is available on our website: https://natfedparks.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/NFPGS-MHCLG-Survey-Report-Summary-23.4.2020-converted.pdf
It is heartening that the overwhelming majority of parks remain open and that most groups feel that members of the public are adhering to social distancing.
Stay safe and well all.
