The Naturally Birmingham Project works with communities and project partners to help “Bring Parks to Life”. We know that across the city Fair, Green, Healthy, Engaged and Valued green spaces are not yet available to all residents – we are working on that.
We call this “achieving environmental justice” and our aim is to achieve this for all residents. In some areas this could just be changing how a park is maintained, or putting in a noticeboard so groups and activities can be advertised. In some areas it may mean finding out how we can create more publicly accessible green space, and so we are developing a 25 year plan driven by an ambitious vision for a City of Nature.
At Stechford Recreation Ground known locally as Yardley Fields we are starting with a Community Conversation with local residents, to get the ideas flowing for this lovely open space. Is it well managed, does it need paths, or a sports pitch, more trees, bins, opportunities to volunteer or organised activities, perhaps more wildlife. We want you to tell us so we can work out what and how we can bring this park to life – with your help.
Community Conversation Stechford Recreation Ground – 11am – 1pm 31st June 2021
