New Map Launched to Boost Awareness of Peterborough’s Green Spaces

Nowadays, more and more people are prioritising the availability of green spaces when deciding where to live.

With that in mind, Peterborough looks set to become a more desirable location – as there’s now an online map showing the locations of hundreds of beautiful open areas.

The Cambs Open Space map aims to make it easier for residents to reconnect with nature and experience the many outdoor facilities that the city – and the surrounding areas – have to offer.

Over 200 parks are plotted on the map, which forms the centrepiece of a new campaign called #LetsGetOutdoors, which aims to encourage residents to take advantage of the green spaces that surround them.

As well as showcasing nearby parks and open spaces, the website also details events that are set to take place at them. From runs and walks to sporting events and even poetry meetings, there’s plenty of dates for the whole family to look forward to.

Robert Pearce, Programme Director for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Future Parks, which is running the #LetsGetOutdoors campaign, said: “We are so pleased to be launching Cambs Open Space this spring.

“Cambs Open Space came into being through the collective effort of the partnership and a shared ambition to enable people to make the most of their parks and green spaces. Our green spaces are important community places, they are great for people’s physical and mental health, and provide safe habitats for local wildlife.

“Over the past few years people have come to appreciate their parks more than ever. We hope people will use the Cambs Open Space map to continue exploring Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s fantastic outdoor spaces.”
