Open space strategy

The Tower Hamlets parks and open spaces strategy aims to ensure that the borough's parks and open spaces reflect the shared vision of the council and its partners: to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in Tower Hamlets. Parks and open spaces are important elements of all the borough's community plan themes: living safely; living well; creating and sharing prosperity; learning achievement, leisure and excellent public services.

The strategy details how the council and its partners plan to achieve and maintain the highest quality parks and open spaces that are safe and accessible to all of the borough's residents and visitors. The strategy also focuses on sustainability. It outlines the council's plan to cater for the future needs of the community and the environment in the design and use of open spaces.

The strategy has been developed in consultation with local people, residents groups, community groups and public bodies with an interest in open space issues.

Each year, the council carries out improvements to parks and open spaces, as identified in the open spaces strategy. This includes refurbishment to play areas, park furniture, planting and signage.
