The State of Your Park

There are currently two surveys where you can give feedback on the state of your park.

The first is Bristol based. A Parks and Estates Satisfaction survey has gone live from today and runs for 12 weeks.

This is for all park users there will be posters and notices placed in the parks and it is also being publicised on the @BristolParks twitter feed.


The other current survey is a UK wide one aimed at Park Groups.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has commissioned a research team to gather information and prepare a draft report on the State of UK Public Parks that will be published by the HLF launched next year.

As part of this the HLF are carrying out a survey of Friends and User groups across the UK asking their views on the current issues and how they may be contributing to their parks.

The deadline for this survy is Friday 27th September 2013

To aid completion of the survey, a reference copy can be downloaded in pdf format by clicking here.

The survey will be used to produce a report which will be a very detailed assessment on the state of the UK’s parks. It will be used to call for action from Central Government to recognise the extent of the unfolding financial crisis for green spaces, and to ensure adequate protection and resources for all our green spaces.
