Show your park some love this summer by getting involved in the nation’s biggest celebration of green spaces.
North East Lincolnshire Council has joined forces with its partners to encourage residents to celebrate this year’s Love Parks Week (Saturday, July 21 to Sunday, July 29) by attending an organised event or simply enjoying a walk or picnic in a local park.
In this Olympic year, the council’s sports development team will be hosting a Community Games event at a number of parks in the area. Inspired by the London 2012 Games, there will be free traditional games and activities on offer for children of all ages. These events are taking place in a number of parks and at various times during the week. For more information about these events download the poster on the right hand side of this page.
Council staff will also be on-hand to talk to park visitors about council services on:
Monday, July 23 at Havertoe Park from 1pm to 4pm
Wednesday, July 25 at People’s Park from 1pm to 4pm
Thursday, July 25 at Sussex Recreation Ground from 1pm to 4pm.
Love Parks Week will culminate in a family event in People’s Park on Sunday, July 28, organised by local arts organisation The Culture House. There will be live music, art performances and other fun activities taking place from 11am to 4pm (for further details download the poster on the right hand side of this page).
Councillor Mick Burnett, portfolio holder for tourism and culture, said: “We are due some sunshine and I’m hoping it will make an appearance during Love Parks Week so that everyone can come out and enjoy the fantastic parks and open spaces we have in North East Lincolnshire.”
Love Parks Week is the nation’s biggest and best celebration of green spaces. It aims to raise awareness of the importance of parks and green spaces, showing the benefits they bring and highlighting the need for continual investment and engagement.
