Many open spaces and recreation grounds have been provided by individuals1 and by philanthropic bodies2, and gifts for their provision constitute gifts for charitable purposes3 provided they are capable of benefiting the whole community or a sufficiently large section of it4. However, few, if any, private persons have received statutory powers in respect of such matters, and the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty (commonly known as the National Trust)5, is the only philanthropic body which, in recent years, has received statutory powers for such purposes exercisable beyond some particular district.
