3. Understanding and measuring the positive impact of well-managed green space on physical and mental wellbeing


This session will focus on the Land Trust’s innovative two-year Health for Life project that was run at the Countess of Chester County Park and academically evaluated by the Natural Health Service Centre of Excellence.

The £70,000 programme saw nearly 700 different events and sessions organised at the park for the public and NHS staff from the nearby hospital. Nearly 300 participants took part in the study with their health and wellbeing measured at the start and end of an 8-12 week programme.

  • Have a better understanding of the positive impact spending time outdoors can have on mental health in particular
  • Understand how the project was academically evaluated
  • The long term positive impact this could have in the future, including significant savings for the NHS through social prescribing
