ParkSeek Nature Break Part One

ParkSeek Natural Space Audit Tool

ParkSeek is expected to investigate the quality of parks and recreational facilities across Canada, by conducting field audits in these spaces. To help inform the development and refinement of the audit tools, we would like you to take your nature break by visiting a park or recreation space close to you, and to complete a short audit on the space. This tool is a modified version of the electronic Natural Environments Scoring Tool (eNEST), a common auditing tool in parks and recreation facility research and evaluation at the municipal level. It should take approximately 10-15 minutes. You can download the audit tool below.

Please share any feedback by emailing us at parkseek [at] uwo.ca
