Public parks provide for natural beauty and recreational space and play a vital role in creating a sense of community. If not activated or maintained, public parks can become neglected, uncomfortable and even unsafe.  Drawing on work done by the City of Johannesburg and partners to upgrade green public spaces through collaboration and co-creation with stakeholders and community, this SPRINT learning brief argues that the provision of quality public green spaces is vital in creating safer, inclusive neighbourhoods. The brief highlights six factors of good practice for co-producing, managing and activating green public spaces.
