More than a dozen parks across the UK are to receive a share of a £34.5 million investment boost for restoration work and new facilities. The announcement of funding for 13 parks around the country comes after warnings the UK's public green spaces were "close to crisis point".
A report from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) revealed 86% of park managers had seen cuts to their budget since 2010, while almost half of local authorities (46%) were considering selling parks and green spaces or handing management over to others.
