On 30 March 2023, Warrington Worldwide reported on new research which ranks Warrington second best place in UK towns and cities for park space.
The research took place in honour of this year’s Take A Walk In The Park Day, celebrated tomorrow, March 30, which analysed just how much green space within urban areas is available for Britons across the UK.
According to the World Health Organization, the minimum of green space per person in urban areas is 9m².
Keeping this in mind, the data is rather disappointing, as only one city in the UK has more than 9m² of green space per inhabitant, while the rest of them fall short.
Second-placed Warrington, which has 6.1m² of park space per 10 inhabitants, although lower than Milton Keynes 15m², it is still a respectable figure and offers plenty of opportunities for residents to enjoy outdoor activities.
