Green spaces

We asked: What do you most like about living/working/studying round here?


You see never being far from a green space as a real asset and something you hold very dear. Many of you talked about green spaces: both the different types of green space, how you use them and what it means to your life. 

"I love Valley Gardens in Pontefract, Pontefract Park and Purston park. It’s only recently I’ve come across Purston Park and it’s so well kept, clean and lovely and quiet. Green spaces are really good for both your physical and mental health.”
