Your Park Bristol & Bath, a registered charity in England and Wales no 1182217, independently commissioned this qualitative research to delve further into specific barriers to accessing parks, the impact this has on people’s lives and the opportunities to improve access.
During the course of the research, it became evident that one specific community is disproportionately affected: disabled people and unpaid carers, both adult and child.
This study reveals the key barriers to park usage and makes recommendations for equitable access to green space and its benefits for this community.
