Further Park Research – Website Links

Considering an App to report vandalism in parks, also other issues such as fly-tipping, dog fouling. But also could be used for positive things such as letting park users know about Park events such as fayres, gardening/allotments groups, sports groups, etc.

Thinking about aiming the app and both children and adults. Maybe engaging children with some sort of reward scheme? Or maybe get them involved more in their local park by getting them to plant bulbs/flowers, litter pick or maybe paint murals? Creating a sense that it is “their” park so hopefully this will reduce vandalism/anti-social behaviour. Also create a sense that the park is looked after/maintained/watched. Vandals are less likely to create problems if they think they are being watched.
