Barnet has a great collection of parks and open spaces and these are an important part of what makes Barnet a green borough. People who live and work in Barnet enjoy access to formal parks and gardens, wild landscapes, extensive areas of greenbelt and leafy river valleys.

The council has published a strategy that provides  a review of the quality of its parks and suggests a range of opportunities that green spaces offer to enhance the quality of life and economic success of the borough. The overall objective of the strategy is to support the council’s objectives for parks and open spaces as set out in the Corporate Plan: ‘Barnet’s parks and green spaces will be amongst the best in London’. The strategy links to a number of other pieces of work that consider health, wellbeing, sports provision and waste. All of these strategies are aimed at making Barnet a better place to live and work.
