Quality green public space

Quality green public space

5 November 2020

Healthy Parks Healthy People have released their Quality Green Open Space Action Plan: 2020-22, a revised plan to progress collaborative action for increased green infrastructure in urban settings.

A partnership between Wellbeing SA and the Department for Environment and Water (DEW),  the Healthy Parks Healthy People project team recognise that “well planned and designed public and private green spaces are key to the health and wellbeing of people and the natural environment, as well as the local economy. “

Adelaide’s tree canopy cover is the lowest of Australia’s capital cities, and ensuring that quality green space is available to all South Australians has become a key challenge for the urban planning, health and environment sectors. Because a growing Adelaide is better greener.

The action plan will continue to guide action to promote the greening of the public and private realm.
