Oldham celebrates Love Parks Week with host of events

OLDHAM COUNCIL is showing its support to Love Parks Week 2017 by hosting a range of events and activities across the borough’s parks from 14-23 July.

Love Parks Week, now in its eleventh year, is Britain’s biggest celebration of these valuable spaces and gives everyone an opportunity to show how much they love their local park.

There is a total of 23 parks across Oldham, including Alexandra Park and Dunwood Park, which were both awarded the Green Flag Award in 2016, the benchmark national standard for publicly accessible parks and green spaces.

To do your bit for this year’s Love Parks Week, head over to your local park and enjoy a peaceful stroll, a kick about with friends, or even a bit of fun on the playground.

The local authority also wants you to share the reasons why you love your park so much. Send in your messages via social media and they will share their favourites on Twitter (@OldhamCouncil) and Facebook (I Love Oldham) channels. Don’t forget to use the chosen hashtags #LoveParks and #LoveOldham.
