As part of our work to champion the parks and green spaces that act as the green hearts and lungs of our communities, we are bringing Have a Field Day, UK’s Best Park 2019 and the Green Space Index together as part of one long ‘Summer of Parks’. Between now and mid-September, we’ll be celebrating everything that we all love about our local parks and green spaces, leading discussions on the issues affecting parks and giving you plenty of opportunities to get involved along the way.
There's lots of ways to get involved and champion parks and green spaces throughout the summer. Explore our new Green Space Index, celebrate your local green space with UK's Best Park and picnic with Have a Field Day!
Sign-up to receive our weekly email digest and you'll get a round-up of each week's conversation and look ahead to the coming week delivered direct to your inbox every Monday throughout the summer.
Each week throughout the summer we'll be leading a conversation on a different theme relating to parks and green spaces. You'll be able to find all the content from each week on the below pages or by signing-up to our weekly digest and you can get involved by heading over our social media channels.
