Croydon celebrates Love Parks Week

Croydon’s 127 parks and green spaces will be among hundreds of parks across the country taking part in Love Parks Week 2023.

The annual campaign will take place this year from today (28 July) to 6 August, bringing together local authorities, green space managers, landowners, residents and community organisations to celebrate and support our fantastic green spaces all across the country.

Croydon will be celebrating our parks via social media, and making some exciting announcements this week as part of the campaign.

“Love Parks Week shines a light on one of our borough’s best features – our fantastic parks and green spaces. This week gives us an important opportunity to celebrate all the people who protect and maintain them, like our hard-working staff and local ‘Friends of Parks’ volunteers – thank you for all you do!

“I’m looking forward to making some exciting announcements next week – so please watch this space for news on how we’re working to improve Croydon’s parks.”

Jason Perry, Executive Mayor of Croydon

Keep Britain Tidy’s Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton OBE, said: “The Love Parks campaign would not be possible without the backing of our local authority partners, including Croydon’s park managers and landowners.

“This week is an opportunity for everyone to recognise the value of our parks and green spaces for communities, health and wellbeing, and to encourage groups within our communities that may not think of parks as a space for them to visit.”

This year’s campaign is made possible thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
