Revaluing Parks and Green Spaces

The average Total Economic Value of parks and green spaces to an individual is £30.24 per year, this captures benefits gained from using local parks as well as their preservation for future generations. 
Data clearly shows that local parks and green spaces can play an important role in providing social cohesion and integration. Fields in Trust have published research revaluing parks and green spaces. They are a necessity for healthy, happy communities positively impacting on a range of key wellbeing issues from physical and mental health, childhood obesity to social cohesion.
