Love Parks Week

Park lovers are invited to join events being held in Bedford Borough’s parks to celebrate Love Parks Week which runs from 25th July until 3rd August.


Love Parks Week aims to encourage people to visit, enjoy and take pride in their local parks and greens spaces.


Councillor Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “Bedford Borough is blessed with thousands of acres of beautiful parks and green spaces, including four nationally recognised ‘Green Flag’ parks.


“Whether you are a frequent parks and open space visitor or not, Love Parks Week is a great opportunity to visit our parks and open spaces and perhaps even get involved with the activities and fun on offer.”
