Love Parks Week 2021 • Vision RCL

Love Parks Week 2021


Join us in celebrating Love Parks Week from Friday 23 July – Sunday 1 August 2021!

In the last year, more and more people have come to see the benefits of visiting our parks and green spaces. During lockdown, all Redbridge parks remained open to the Redbridge community for daily exercise, fresh air, peace and quiet and a safe place to meet friends and family under restrictions. For many, our parks and open spaces have become a vital lifeline.

Keep Britain Tidy will be running their annual campaign this summer. This year’s 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. To show our appreciation, we will be running some events in Redbridge parks and open spaces including family days out, volunteering workdays and health and wellbeing activities.

Be sure to keep up to date with the campaign on social media by following the hashtag #LoveParks
