Our parks make our lives better. Let’s help keep them this way.

Scotland’s parks are well-used and much loved. Each year Scots make over 162 million visits to parks and greenspaces. Greenspaces are our natural health service, our children’s outdoor classrooms and our towns’ and cities’ green lungs. They bring benefits for our families, our communities, our health and wellbeing, and the environment.  

But not everyone enjoys easy access to quality greenspace, and across Scotland parks are feeling the pinch. Parks need your help to care for them.

Parks4Life is Scotland’s first ever fund for parks and greenspaces. It provides an easy way for all of us to show how much we love our parks. Managed by greenspace scotland, it aims to raise £1million this year to help support Scotland’s parks with a sustainable fund for the future.

We want to ensure our precious parks continue to be cherished and nurtured so that we hand them on in good heart for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. With your support, we can help our communities bring their parks to life and make the best of our parks for everyone to enjoy now and in the future.

Please note if you have a made a regular donation, it will not appear immediately in the Parks4Life Fund total because it can take up to 5 days for your bank to process and approve a direct debit.
