The ParkLife project is a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and the City of Edinburgh Council. It is funded by Nesta through a grant from the Big Lottery Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim of the ParkLife project is to understand how people use and value Edinburgh’s parks. The goal of the project is to produce an open source toolkit which will enable park managers, stakeholders and users to collect, analyse, interpret and share data that will support engagement with parks and the long-term sustainable development of parks.

The project is addressing three challenges:

1. How can we create an up-to-date information source about how parks are used and what people value about them?
2. How can we use that information to focus resources and investment on what people value so that parks better meet their needs and interests?
3. How can we better engage people to contribute to improving parks?

The ParkLife project is piloting in 4 of Edinburgh's 145 parks - Leith Links, Saughton Park, Inverleith Park and the Meadows. Check out the blog posts below for the most recent updates.
