Love Parks Week organiser GreenSpace appeals for events

Park departments supporting Love Parks Week can drive their services up the political agenda by registering with the national awareness-raising campaign and demonstrating their importance to the local community, says organisers GreenSpace.

GreenSpace is inviting local authorities and community groups to organise events, or brand existing events, as part of Love Parks Week.

Events registered on the website will appear on the ‘What’s on guide’, which members of the public can use to search for their local park event. There are 450 events registered and an estimated 300,000 people attending events.

This year's Love Parks Week, which takes place between 24 July and 1 August, is set to match last year, which saw 600 events registered and an estimated 400,000 people attending the events.

The national campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of Britain’s parks and green spaces and the central role that parks play in communities across the country. This is the fifth year that GreenSpace have held the campaign, and in 2010 the focus is on encouraging as many people as possible to get into parks to join our campaign for continued investment and support for these valuable assets.
