Future Parks conference

On 20th October 2016, the Future Parks partnership, in collaboration with Winckworth Sherwood LLP, hosted a major conference for local government on the crisis facing public parks. The Future Parks conference brought together over 70 attendees from local authorities, national agencies and NGOs to discuss how to achieve a sustainable future for public parks and green spaces, and maximise opportunities to deliver public benefit.
