The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the lives of Johannesburg’s different communities. Periods of stringent lockdown and shifts in the ways in which people are able to access opportunities, work, live and move within the city have also seen changes in the use of parks and green spaces.
Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ), the City of Johannesburg’s (CoJ’s) agency that is responsible for the CoJ’s parks and green spaces, is conducting research to understand how those who live and work in the city have been using City-run parks and green spaces (including nature reserves, koppies and botanical gardens) during this period. We hope to understand how these spaces are being used and what new needs are emerging, so that we can build these into the design and management of the City’s parks and green spaces in the future.
These are your parks and green spaces. We want to hear from you!
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of open space – and with this, the opportunities that parks and green spaces could provide. We would like to use this survey to inform our COVID-19 recovery programmes, and to improve the design and management of City-run parks and green spaces so that they are more welcoming, inclusive, and better able to meet everyone’s needs. Consolidated findings will be shared via our website, www.jhbcityparksandzoo.com.
The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your participation in the survey is voluntary.
By completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a lucky draw for a number of giveaways: 16 picnic hampers; 25 picnic blankets; 50 vouchers for entrance into the Johannesburg Zoo.
Should you have any questions, please send these to firstname.lastname@example.org. The survey will close at midnight on 16 August 2021.
Thank you for your time, and for sharing your valuable inputs.”
