The Future of Leeds Parks

Public parks have been vital features of our cities since the nineteenth century, providing benefits to people, communities and the environment. But what are their prospects and what is important to you about their future management? Find out about how Leeds parks have changed through time at this free exhibition based on research by the University of Leeds, consider the challenges and opportunities facing parks today and have your say on a 10-year strategy for the future of Leeds parks and green spaces. This event is hosted in partnership with Leeds City Council and the Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum.

This event is open to all.
