Find out what’s on in your parks

Join in with the 100 million visits to UK parks this #LoveParks Week (14 -23 July) and tell the world why you love your Central Bedfordshire park.

Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy’s Love Parks Week, now in its 11th year, and is the nation’s biggest celebration of these valuable spaces.
