9. Creating healthy places: the wellbeing impact of parks


Get clear on the mounting evidence around the health and wellbeing benefits of parks and urban greenspaces. Review what works when enhancing said benefits, and learn how to demonstrate quantifiable evidence of their impact. This session will present new research, which seeks to place economic value of health outcomes at an individual park level; learn how this can provide further insight into community engagement with our greenspaces and offer up opportunities for fostering active play.
