We have been discussing the future of parks with Leeds Park’s Forum, organized by Leeds Ciy Council. There has been lots of recent reports from various organizations about how Park funding is being cut by Councils and forgotten by Government. Much more is now expected of Friends Groups and other green space third sector organizations. As part of the Forum we are working to demonstrate how Parks benefit community health and wellbeing.
