SCENE: Love Parks Week by Anna Stassen of www.sakurajewellery.com


Most of us feel better for a bit of green space nearby and, as an ex- Londoner, I found this particularly important to my well-being whilst living in the wonderful but rather bustling capital of our fair isle. These communal green spaces are places for communities to come together and share in the simple joys of glorious nature.


Love Parks Week is, as the name suggests, a week-long love affair with your local green spaces. The concept was founded by GreenSpace back in 2006, with the aim of encouraging people to visit, enjoy and take pride in their local parks and green spaces.

green space looks like and will begin to assess the nation’s parks by encouraging people to give their park a simple health check. You can see how your local park measures up by answering a few simple questions over on the Love Parks Week Park Health Check page.


You can get involved in driving the message that our parks and green spaces are essential to healthy, happy and strong communities by holding, or simply attending a Love Parks Week event. To find your nearest event check out the handy, interactive map.
