4Connect People

​Connect people to the park and to each other.

Create convenient and safe connections with surrounding cycle, walking and public transport networks which are easy to access and navigate. Make the park accessible for those with mobility and sensory impairments, where practical. Carefully plan the layout and clustering of facilities, so that people can meet, socialise, and spend time together in the park.

Provide facilities for social interaction

Enjoying ecological places together will encourage people to share their knowledge and appreciation of parks. Incorporate seating, picnic tables or lookout platforms where people can congregate to enjoy the special features of a park, such as a stunning view. Do so sensitively so as not to cause damage to the natural environment.
