Green Space Index provides robust national quantity data

The quantity and distribution of publicly accessible green space has been mapped, for the first time, by charity Fields in Trust. The data shows that there are 216,000 hectares of public green space across the UK, but 2.6 million people live further than a 10-minute walk from their nearest space. The data will be updated annually, meaning for the first time it will be possible to track trends in the provision of parks and green spaces – and, potentially their loss to development – across the UK.
