Parks and green spaces are the starting points for countless sporting journeys. For some they lead to elite sporting success and for others they are personal victories, each as important as all others.


Get involved this week

Everyone's sporting journey is different but we can all do our bit both to take our own journey and help others on theirs.

One Small Thing
One Small ThingThis week we’re asking you to cast your mind back and think of sporting achievements you made at your local park or green space when you were younger – perhaps it was where you kicked a ball for the first time, picked up a racket or learnt to ride a bike. Let us know your memories on Twitter using #LoveYourLocalPark!
