Stratford-on-Avon District Council is amongst hundreds of Councils across the country taking part in Love Parks Week 2023.

The celebration will take place from 28 July to 6 August, bringing together local authorities, green space managers, landowners, residents and community organisations to celebrate and support our fantastic green spaces all across the country.

Cllr Lorraine Grocott, Environmental and Neighbourhood Services Portfolio Holder at Stratford-on-Avon District Council said: "Love Parks Week is a great time to celebrate all the wonderful parks and play areas we have across Stratford-on-Avon District.

"People love spending their time in their local park. Love Parks is all about how we can protect and enjoy our fantastic parks and green spaces."

Looking for something that your younger children can do? Try Parks Bingo. It's really easy to take part and will get them looking for what's in their surroundings. All you have to do is download and print the Park Bingo sheet and away you go!

Keep Britain Tidy's Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton OBE, said: "The Love Parks campaign would not be possible without the backing of our local authority partners, including Stratford-on-Avon District Council, park managers and landowners.

"This week is an opportunity for everyone to recognise the value of our parks and green spaces for communities, health and wellbeing, and to encourage groups within our communities that may not think of parks as a space for them to visit."

This year's campaign is made possible thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery.
