Abstract

Access to greenspace and similar resources has the potential to encourage physical activity, increase social contact and promote health and well-being. Glasgow, while displaying significant inequalities in health, is well resourced in terms of such resources. This study explored the quality and accessibility of greenspaces and community resources such as halls and leisure centres across two socially contrasting areas of the city.
