World Parks Week was developed out of World Parks Day, which was held in the Fall. In 2017, World Urban Parks developed the event into a week and moved it to April/May.

World Parks Week is an opportunity to celebrate our parks and green spaces. The week is organised to:

  • Communicate the critical importance of parks in a global context
  • Promote best practices by learning from other parks services
  • Encourage people to enjoy nature and appreciate the importance of green space while maintaining physical distancing

World Parks Week: Trending recently is rapid adoption and extension of the 10 / 20 / 30 Minute Neighborhood concept – all people having access to a nearby park and their basic needs within a 10- minute safe and accessible walk or ride, and incorporating these into existing and forthcoming new cities and communities globally by 2030.

Love the concept of the 10 / 20 / 30 minute park – What apps are we actually to find parks and identify nature? Google Maps? iNaturalist? Seek?
