Guardian initiative coincides with annual Love Parks Week
Coinciding with the forthcoming Love Parks Week, which runs from 24 July – 2 August, The Guardian newspaper is urging people to share their photographs and stories of ‘endangered’ public parks.
So far some 23 readers have contributed to the scheme, which calls for those whose public parks are in danger of privatisation to share their fears and details of those already affected by council budget cuts, and to celebrate their favourites green spaces.
Readers’ contributions thus far include Greenwich Park, Bexley’s Belvedere Splash Park and Cowlick Park, in Nottingham.
Love Parks Week is intended to raise awareness of the importance of parks and green spaces. Now in its ninth year, the scheme is a platform for thousands of park lovers to join forces in the UK’s largest celebration of green spaces.
See the Love Parks website for more details.
