Park Managers Forum and study tour took place on Thursday 19 September at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in North Lanarkshire. There were two themes for the day: Creating a new park on a post-industrial site and Parks as our natural health service.

The morning included a study tour to the new Ravenscraig urban park site adjacent to the sports centre where work has just started. Staff from ideverde who sponsors the Park Managers Forum took the participants on themed tours of the site.

After lunch Vicki Trim from the Lanarkshire Green Health Partnership set the new park in the context of Green Health and Park Managers were given the chance to explore the themes of the day in workshops sessions.

A download link providing access to the presentations and workshop notes will be circulated to members of the Park Managers Forum.
