Community cohesion and positive benefits

Community Cohesion

Parks and greenspace provide a focal point for members of a community to come together and interact in a positive and enjoyable way. This kind of interaction and sharing of experiences helps to create the bonds and ties that hold a community together and create a common understanding of the nature of the community. Parks and greenspace are accessible to all members of the community and most people will find something that attracts them to use the facilities provided. This might be for quiet relaxation, walking the dog, taking the children to the playground, meeting friends and family for a picnic or participating in sport
