Love, Respect & Protect your parks this summer

Run in the grass, chase a butterfly, dance, jump and play games for hours. Our parks & open spaces are a great place for you and your family to make memories this summer.

We all share our beautiful parks and green spaces. They are wonderful places to picnic, to sit, to share a moment in time - not places to leave your rubbish behind!

Make memories, not mess - if you find a bin is full, please take it to another bin or take it home with you.

Please be kind and courteous and consider other users of the parks. Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.

No BBQs or fires in parks and open spaces

We’re reminding residents and visitors that BBQs and campfires are not permitted in any of our parks, open spaces or nature reserves, due to the risk of causing an accidental fire which could destroy wildlife, landscapes and be a danger to people and property.
