Safer Parks. Improving access for girls and women

We know that women don’t feel as safe as men in all public spaces. This affects their ability to move around freely, reduces opportunities for work and leisure and denies them the huge physical and mental health benefits that parks can bring. This guidance shows how we can make changes to park design and management to help women and girls feel safer and more welcome in these spaces, at all times of day and throughout the year.
