Wellbeing & Outdoor Space

Mental Health and Wellbeing has never been so important to each and everyone of us of all ages. With such busy lifestyles, taking some time-out during the day for a breather, a lunch break, or some ‘after work’ wind down time can re-invigorate our senses and make time for calm.

What better way to improve mental health and wellbeing than to visit one of our ‘Pistachios in the Parkparks located across London, Surrey and Sussex. Our calming park areas provide tranquil spaces to sit and enjoy the scenery, to take in the atmosphere and here the sounds of nature actively going about their day.

Mental Health and Wellbeing doesn’t have to be just about time alone, it can be about spending time with friends and family at one of our Pistachios in the Park cafes. Take a stroll around the many pathways or enjoy a moment during the day for focus a bench, health and fitness or an outdoor sports game.
