Residents are being encouraged to show their love for their local parks by getting outdoors during Love Parks Week, 14 to 23 July.

To get involved, people can visit their local park, take a photo and share the reason why they love it on social media using the hashtag #LoveParks. The national campaign has been organised by Keep Britain Tidy and has the aim of showing pride in parks to help to protect them for future generations.

Borough of Broxbourne residents have plenty of beautiful green spaces to choose from. There are the trees and a lake in Barclay Park, history at Cedars Park, Cheshunt Park’s natural beauty and the Top Field at Cozens Grove.

They can also enjoy many smaller open spaces maintained by the Council as well as the waterways and greenery of the Lee Valley Park.

Broxbourne Council maintains parks in the borough except for the Lee Valley Park, which is managed by The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

Councillor Tim Hutchings, Cabinet Member for Public and Environmental Protection, said: “We’re proud that this Borough hosts so many stunning parks and green spaces and they are an integral part of the area’s history too.

“There’s plenty to discover and enjoy in our parks, from the impressive collection of trees in Barclay Park to the royal history of Cedars Park, and I would like to encourage everyone to get outside and get involved.”
