Public funding of public parks as a public good

Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees is pictured in today's Bristol Post promoting the city as European City of Sport

At the same time he plans to withdraw ALL council funding for public parks where a lot of sporting activity takes place (more on this issue here; sign the petition opposing the plans here). 

I urge him to change his incoherent and unacceptable plans to abandon all funding for our parks and instead support public funding of public parks as a public good.

See the case for the idea of public provision of services here. Also see here on how and why city green spaces are of great value.
