Kingston Council is responsible for over 500 hectares of public open space, including 43 parks, 22 allotments and 30 playgrounds across the borough.
Last year, almost 400 residents had their say on how they would like to see these areas managed in the future with overwhelming support for wildlife friendly adjustments.

This feedback will help shape the council’s refreshed Green Spaces Strategy and new Biodiversity Action Plan launching next year.
