Out There |  our parks and green spaces

Within Staffordshire, we’re blessed with an abundance of green spaces and inner city parks, and surrounded by wonderful countryside in every direction.  Local parks and wider green spaces are important for our physical wellbeing encouraging us outdoors and to get active, but also our social and mental health too.  They make great meeting places and provide a whole host of activities and amenities, many of which are free to use – we just need to get out there!

Below we share some of our favourite local green spaces – and we’ll be adding more in due course.   We’ve also included details some of our local sculptures and artworks that you can find in around those green spaces – especially for the art lovers and creative types among you.

We’ll be rating the green spaces on their wellbeing benefit too – check out our Parks Rating page to see how we’ve come up with the rating scores.
