Northgate Park is such a welcoming space that provides benefits for all, a place whereby the surrounding community can connect, meet and form friendships. Using high-quality materials from FHS this playground adds real value to the Barking Riverside development.

The proportion of green and open space is linked to self-reported levels of health and mental health for all ages and socio-economic groups, through improving companionship, sense of identity and belonging and happiness.

Urban planners, local authorities and developers should work together to improve walk-ability in new developments to promote health and wellbeing and create sustainable and popular residential communities.

“Playing outside is increasingly seen as a saleable asset … buyers are attracted to the places that are going to be nice to live in. Unfortunately, good quality examples, such as Barking Riverside, are few and far between.”
