Good quality outdoor recreational space can enhance people’s quality of life and, while people will use attractive well-run spaces, they are put off getting out and being active, if their local area is below expectation.
The OPFA is here to help the community-minded people in the parishes (mostly volunteers), who manage the playing fields, children’s play areas and multi-purpose hard surfaces, to make them the best quality that they can.
We aim to make the task of outdoor recreational space provision and management as easy as possible and in particular, during the recent pandemic, our advice on how to provide and manage local spaces in line with COVID19-safe good practice has been vital.
We can provide information and advice on needs assessments, sources of funding and successful project management.
We can help you.
