Here in the Northwest we currently host 9 regional parks that have been inspired by the work done in Emscher Regional Park in the Ruhr in Germany - a prime example of how designation as a regional park can help encourage investment in urban and environmental regeneration. Gareth Chadwick explores the thinking behind the Northwest’s regional parks and talks to leading proponents of the schemes about what makes regional parks such a potent force for change.
