Find your nearest alternative greenspaces by searching the map above, or by viewing the list of sites below.
Alternative local greenspaces have been either specially created or enhanced to provide communities with high quality outdoor sites to explore and enjoy, whilst easing recreational pressure on the fragile protected heathland. Such sites are also known as Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspaces (SANGs).
These alternative sites situated outside of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area provide a pleasant natural environment for a stroll, where dogs can be exercised off-lead. Generally most of the alternative greenspaces listed will include provision for free parking.
