We believe that parks and green spaces have a positive impact on a range of key issues from physical and mental health and wellbeing to community cohesion.


Research and policy

We champion parks and green spaces, not only as places to enjoy but also for the value they contribute to the communities that use them. This includes our own research into the impact and value of parks and green spaces, contributions to relevant consultations and analysis of current policy and activity.

Research and insight
We conduct research into benefits that parks provide, enabling us to take an evidence-led approach to protecting green spaces for good

Policy and advocacy
We work with stakeholders across the policy spectrum to provide advice, influence and support on matters relating to green spaces



Alongside our own research and policy contributions we run public campaigns to ensure the contributions of parks and green spaces are recognised and celebrated.

Have a Field Day
On the first Saturday in July we encourage Friends of Parks groups, community organisations, volunteers and parks users to show how much you #LoveYourLocalPark

UK's Best Park
Fields in Trust champions the parks and green spaces cherished by their communities, in particular, our annual celebration of the UK's Best Park which is nominated and voted for by the public
