MyParkScotland launched in Edinburgh and Glasgow over the Spring Bank holiday (23-25 May). To celebrate, greenspace Scotland encouraged people to get out and enjoy their parks on the run up to the launch.
The new online resource helps people to find parks to enjoy in Edinburgh and Glasgow. It is possible to search all 254 parks by location, postcode or facilities. There is also an events calendar to promote what’s happening in parks located near to the user. And if you’re looking for funding for a park project, it’s also Scotland’s only crowdfunding site specifically for parks and greenspace project.
MyPark Scotland is also Scotland’s only crowdfunding site specifically for parks and greenspaces. An added benefit of crowdfunding through MyParkScotland is that as an independent Scottish charity, people are able to Gift Aid their donation. This ‘extra funding’ will go towards building an endowment fund for Scotland parks – helping to safeguard our national treasures for future generations.
This provides an opportunity for groups in Edinburgh and Glasgow to raise funds for green network projects in and connecting parks.
