Another Way? The U.K. Park Trust Model
As parks departments continue to face major cuts to their budgets, interest is growing in the park trust model to provide a long term and secure future. Nene Park Trust was the first park trust created in the UK, and was conceived from a strong desire to ensure that the park would be managed long-term by a secure and financially stable organization solely dedicated to this task. James McCulloch provides an overview of park trusts in the UK, how to establish such a model, and highlights the work taking place in Nene Park as an example of what can be achieved.
