42 of the 100 pocket parks are within an Area of Deficiency in access to Local Parks and Small Open Spaces; 53 of the pocket parks are entirely new green spaces and 47 are enhancements to existing amenity space.

Data on access to open space by ward for 2013 and 2014 is provided on the London Datastore. Data for 2015 will be available later this year.
