Love Parks Week 2011: Events Near You!

Love Parks Week is the ultimate green campaign!

Love Parks Week commands for our parks and green spaces to be supported and invested in, whilst delivering a whole week of mainly free, local, outdoor events.

So it doesn’t matter if you live, work or holiday in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Norfolk, South Wales, South West Scotland or the Highlands and Perthshire – you can be involved!

Love Parks Week, now in its fifth year, is a campaign which aims to raise awareness of such important resources, this year it is aiming to gather 1,000 events and attract a million people into parks and green spaces during the first week of the summer holidays – 23 to 31st July 2011. Enjoy your green space and celebrate Love Parks Week.

With already 700 events registered and nearly a month to go, we can safely say there is something for everyone all over the country, including:

  • large festivals and fairs
  • many open-air theatre and music performances

plus a whole array of educational and cultural workshops such as

  • puppet-making
  • wild art and capoeira
  • fitness sessions such as group walks, tai chi and zumba

Sometimes people overlook the many benefits our leafy parks and green spaces provide, from physical and mental health improvements to pure play and entertainment, plus let’s not forget the contribution they make to building communities and their enormous environmental benefit. Chris Beardshaw, award winning garden designer and TV presenter is supporting Love Parks Week and is also passionate about our green spaces.
