The information and images below are edited from a report prepared by Alastair Seaman of Grounds For Learning. Grounds for Learning helps Scottish children to connect with nature, become more active, learn outdoors, develop social skills and have fun. The report is focused on school grounds, but we believe that it is equally relevant to the greenspace around social housing estates. We have shortened the report, there is a link to the full report at the foot of this page.
