Join in with the 100 million visits to UK parks this #LoveParks Week (14 -23 July) and tell the world why you love your park.
Love Parks Week, now in its 11th year, is Britain’s biggest celebration of these valuable spaces. Your District Council is joining the celebration, and encouraging everyone to share why they love Derbyshire Dales’ parks.
This #LoveParks Week, we are encouraging as many people as possible to go out and enjoy their local park. Take a photo, video or simply post on social media, using the hashtag #LoveParks, telling the world why you love your park.
Using this tide of public support, with people sharing how much parks matter to them and why, environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy will campaign to secure the quality of parks for future generations to enjoy.
A District Council spokesperson said:
"We're proud to manage some of the region's most beautiful parks, gardens and open spaces. From the iconic, award-winning Hall Leys Park in Matlock and the recreation grounds in Ashbourne and Bakewell, to a whole host of smaller parks and gardens."
Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award manager said:
“We believe that everybody, wherever they live, should have access to a quality green space. We are asking everyone to join us in showing how much they care and helping us to protect parks for future generations.”
