GreenSpace unveils programme for Parks for Play

GreenSpace has confirmed its full programme for its Park for Play conference next month.

The Parks for Play conference will focus on the future of play provision in parks and green space on 21 April.

Speakers at Parks for Play include:

  • Grant Lambie - Free Play designer who will explore the best way to move from the consultation process to delivery of excellent play areas.
  • Bernard Spiegal from PLAYLINK will discuss risk in play
  • Helen Woolley - senior lecturer at Sheffield University Department of Landscape - will provide advice on the design and maintenance of natural play areas.

The afternoon session will offer delegates the choice of several practical site tours and workshops. There will also be site tours to Sheffield City Council's parks, focusing on recent play projects undertaken by the council.

GreenSpace chief executive Paul Bramhill said: "We know the benefits that excellent play provision can provide, but we need to work towards ensuring parks professionals have the tools and information needed to create and manage play areas that are high quality, accessible and inclusive.

"This conference will provide delegates with up to date information and advice on creating innovative play spaces, with practical workshops and site tours in the afternoon session."

Parks for Play is at St Mary's Conference Centre in Sheffield.
