Community leaders are seeking residents' opinions on the future of "important" public open spaces in east Suffolk.
East Suffolk Council has commissioned consultancy firm Knight, Kavanagh and Page to carry out work on the use of parks, play areas and pitches in the district.
The council has said it also wishes to hear feedback from the community to help leaders identify priorities and allocate resources.
A survey can be filled in by visiting East Suffolk's website.
Letitia Smith, East Suffolk's cabinet member for communities, leisure and tourism, said: "We know how important open spaces are to our communities, particularly in these challenging times.

"They provide an opportunity for sport and recreation, socialising, tourism and wildlife, making it an important contribution to the health and well-being of our communities, ecosystems and economies.
"However, up-to-date information is needed in order to ensure that there is adequate provision of accessible, high quality open spaces that meet the needs and aspirations of local communities, local people and people who work in or visit the district.
