Parks for the people: Activating London’s Green spaces and measuring the impact

  • This event has passed.

47% of London is green space and there are over 3000 parks in our city. We know that many of these parks are well-used but how much do we know about how Londoner’s use them as part of an active lifestyle?


This session aims to share some examples of how London’s parks are being used to maintain an active lifestyle and stimulate discussion around how this activity translates to impacting the health and wellbeing of those involved.

The session will feature content from:

  • strategic bodies around the vision for active parks
  • delivery organisations around park activation and data gathering
