Green Space Wales
Originally formed as a self-help group in the late 1980s the organisation was re-launched in 2011 as Green Space Wales, its membership has now expanded to include the third sector, national charities and training providers, it is also open to commercial members. Green Space Wales represents in the broadest sense, the wide range of green open spaces that exist – from formal parks and gardens to country parks, woodlands and wildlife sites, from play areas to urban plazas and from community gardens and allotments to sports fields and bowling greens,
Our key aims are:
• Sharing experience and promoting best practice
• Providing an informal network for “parks” professionals to support management and development
• Influencing national policy
• Raising the profile of parks at both regional and national levels whilst championing the range of benefits green spaces provide.
Meetings cover a variety of sector relevant topics with both members and guest speakers making presentations. Current and emerging policy issues are always high on the agenda and Green Space Wales contributes on behalf of its members to any relevant government consultations.
Working with other groups is key and Green Space Wales links with a wide range of similar organisations both in the region and beyond.
