Park Rangers

The Ranger Service helps to provide a safe, friendly and welcoming experience for people visiting our parks and open spaces. They also help to manage the Council’s car parks.

Their work includes:

  • A high profile uniformed presence
  • Tackling anti-social behaviour and working in partnership with the Police and CCTV operators
  • Providing high quality customer service – help, support, information and directions to visitors
  • Being a trusted face – providing basic first aid where needed and helping vulnerable persons or lost children
  • Reporting defects and maintenance issues to the relevant authority
  • Managing informal groups and rough sleepers professionally and sensitively
  • Supporting events in parks and open spaces
  • Patrolling parks, cemeteries and car parks and securing them out of hours
  • Enforcement activity

The Ranger Service is available 7 days a week (8am-10pm Sep to Apr and 8am-8pm Apr to Sep).
