All green spaces are important, no matter how small

Pocket parks are small areas of inviting public space where people can enjoy relief from the hustle and bustle of city streets.

Having a park or green space on your doorstep has been proven to reduce anxiety, depression and decreases the chances of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. We have improved the facilities at Kinson by increasing the availability of green space for community use, particularly for residents without gardens of their own.

We have landscaped the green to give everyone more space to relax, get together and as a safe space for children to play.

Come and explore our new areas of planting including new trees and wild flower beds.

Look out for the sculptured owls!
