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. Wirral Council is joining the celebration, and encouraging everyone to share why they love Wirral’s parks.
This #LoveParks Week, we are encouraging as many people as possible to go out and enjoy their local park. Members of our many “Friends Groups” will be out and about so feel free to come and say hello, grab the “I love my park because …” board and snap away or take a selfie and let’s all get sharing those fantastic photos of why we love our parks and don't forget to use the hashtag #LoveParks.
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.
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.”
Cllr Phillip Brightmore, Wirral Council’s Cabinet member for Environment said, “Wirral is home to some of the UK’s best parks and green spaces. This makes Wirral such a great place to live. They are a credit to our staff, volunteers and Community Groups that help to maintain our local area to such a high standard. During Love Parks week take the opportunity to visit your local park and see for yourself the great green spaces we have right on our doorstep.”
