It's Love Parks Week

This year, our parks and green spaces have been a vital lifeline to many of us during the lockdowns.

Around 9 in 10 people surveyed by Natural England in May 2020 agreed that natural spaces are good for mental health and wellbeing.

And yet, our green spaces have been under immense pressure, with local authorities telling us they collected, on average, an extra 57 tonnes of litter during the first lockdown alone.

As we head into summer, our annual Love Parks Week provides a moment to send a rallying cry; to Love, Respect, and Protect our parks throughout the summer of 2021 and beyond. The Parks Management Association support our friends and colleagues in Keep Britain Tidy in this wonderful initiative.
