Parks and open spaces affect all of our lives.  Nine out of ten Portsmouth residents use the city’s parks and your needs are paramount to the way we manage them.

The draft strategy document covered all types of publicly accessible open space, and set out our vision and aims for Portsmouth’s parks and open spaces for the next ten years.  It was distributed widely to interested parties locally, regionally and nationally – the list of consulted groups is included below.  The draft strategy was well received by those who responded to the consultation.

The finalised Parks and Open Spaces Strategy was formally adopted at the city council Cabinet meeting on 5 March 2012.

The strategy considers how Portsmouth’s open spaces are planned, managed, protected, designed and maintained and sets out a series of objectives to ensure that Portsmouth’s parks and open spaces are of a consistent high standard, fit for purpose and meet the needs of Portsmouth’s residents and visitors.
