‘Parks Protector Pledge’ Campaign Response

The SNP have reaffirmed our commitment to invest £60m in renovating and upgrading play parks across the country to ensure that our very youngest children have the outdoor space to play, to build fitness and to be with their friends.

Protecting our green spaces has never been more important as we face a climate emergency. Therefore, we will invest an additional £500million in our natural economy to help tackle the biodiversity crisis. 

The SNP are absolutely determined that everyone in Scotland can benefit from investment in sport and physical activity. Our local parks and green spaces have been a crucial support to so many communities throughout the pandemic. Therefore, we will double investment in sport and active living by the end of the parliament, to £100m a year.
