Making Connections: A Guide to Accessible GreenspaceMaking Connections: a guide to accessible greenspace

Richard Price and Jane Stoneham

Making Connections is about the connections between people and nature, and how we can make parks, public greenspace and countryside available to everyone, regardless of disability, age or circumstance.

There are millions of people in the UK who do not have access to public greenspace. This book examines the reasons, and offers solutions to the primary barriers and challenges in the form of real world case studies and guidance.

Excerpts from the book - sketch illustrates access improvement while the graph shows the list of access barriers is not all you'd expect to see

The book is based on surveys that highlight the barriers preventing older and disabled people from enjoying greenspace, interviews with greenspace managers and designers and site visits. It is aimed at practitioners involved in the planning, design and management of public open space and anyone interested in making outdoor spaces inviting and usable for the widest range of people.

The publication covers issues such as

  • the importance of inclusive information and interpretation
  • what motivates people to visit sites
  • how people can be encouraged to use and get involved in sites
  • legislation and policy
  • site design and management considerations
