The Parks Action Group was created with the aim of exploring the innovative ways we can support parks and green spaces by identifying and sharing best practice in park management and funding and fostering the support of local friends groups.

The Group is reviewing a range of issues relating to parks and green spaces in England and we have committed £500,000 to support the group’s work to safeguard and enhance parks and green spaces for future generations. The Government will report back to Parliament in the Autumn.
