The Parks Alliance (TPA) is the voice of UK parks, representing the people and organisations that create, maintain, invest in and use the public green spaces that we are proud to have at the heart of British life. We campaign at local, regional, and UK levels to ensure that parks are properly funded, their roles recognized and developed, and that the benefits that they provide are clearly understood and recognised.
