Over 100 new and revamped parks to level up towns and cities across the UK

The Levelling Up Parks Fund will create new and improved parks in urban areas, helping communities to come together and enjoy the outdoors.

  • People in urban areas set to benefit from initiative backed by £9 million of government funding
  • Parks to be created in neighbourhoods most deprived of green spaces
  • £2 million of total investment to support tree planting in new parks


People in towns and cities across the UK will benefit from over 100 new and improved green spaces on their doorstep through £9 million in government funding.

The Levelling Up Parks Fund will create new and improved parks in urban areas, helping communities to come together and enjoy the outdoors.

Launching the fund during Love Parks Week, the government hopes each new or improved green space will be an oasis for the local community, boosting creativity and positive mental health whilst also contributing to net zero ambitions.

In England, the cash will be given to councils to create or significantly revamp existing parks in 85 neighbourhoods most deprived of outdoor space. Leicester is one of the areas set to benefit.
