Love Parks Week 2017
Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum are calling for people to celebrate, enjoy and support the parks and other public green spaces of Leeds this year in Love Parks Week which runs from 14 – 23 July 2017.
There are so many ways to enjoy your local park, woodland or nature reserve so why not get out and take a stroll, watch wildlife, play with the kids, do some sport, have a picnic or just relax and enjoy the view! And let us know about it with #loveleedsparks.
And if you really love parks why not get involved by volunteering or donating to the newly established Leeds Parks Fund (see below)?
