Join our fun outdoor events in Central Bedfordshire to celebrate ‘Love Parks Week’

Central Bedfordshire Council is celebrating Love Parks Week by holding a series of activities to inspire people of all ages to play, explore, exercise and relax, running from 24 July – 2 August.

As part of the celebrations there will be lots of events throughout the week in Central Bedfordshire, a number of them free to attend, ranging from Bug Labs at various locations, open-air theatre, outdoor fitness sessions, children’s activities and much more. All the events are available on the council website at: www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/love-parks

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, Executive Member for Community Services for Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “Whilst the warm weather has already provided plenty of excuses to head outdoors, Love Parks Week is a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful green spaces of Central Bedfordshire.

“We believe we have some breath-taking parks and open spaces and six of them have been recognised this week as some of the best community-run green spaces in the country in the National Green Flag Awards.

“We want our residents and visitors to make the most of our fantastic parks and countryside sites, and there’s an array of interesting events lined-up to throughout the week. What better way to start the school holidays than spending time outside, together with family and friends?”

The council is encouraging residents to take a photo, video or simply post on social media, tagging in @Letstalkcentral and use #NationalParksWeek to tell the world why you love your park.

Central Bedfordshire Council also hosts a number of activities throughout the year in its various parks to help people get fit, stay healthy, keep active and enjoy the great outdoors. See www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/leisure
