Love Parks returns for 2023

Postby Community Editor » Thu May 25, 2023 5:11 pm


Love Parks is back in local parks for a month starting this Saturday (26 May).

Wandsworth is the most greenspace-rich borough inner London, and the annual campaign encourages people to enjoy the parks and green spaces on their doorsteps.

Brought to you by Wandsworth Council and Enable, Love Parks will explore four themes: How we look after our green spaces, how they support biodiversity, how they allow us to be active and how they can connect people to each other.

Judi Gasser, Cabinet Member for the Environment said, “Love Parks is all about how we can protect and enjoy our fantastic parks and green spaces. We’ll be running loads of workshop to help people understand biodiversity as well as free fun events so people can get creative and active.  It’s all part of our work to create a greener, more sustainable borough, bring communities together and support local peoples’ physical and mental wellbeing.”

26 May:  Enable will be taking part in a Staff Litter Pick at Wandsworth Common, followed with a public walk and talk about how we look after Wandsworth’s Green Spaces. Open to all – meet outside the Skylark Café at 1pm to take part.

Drop in any time from 10pm to 2pm to see the horses or get involved with the planting and arts sessions.
