If you do anything this week, visit your local park. This week is national Love Parks Week. The Council are encouraging people to get on the grass and visit your local park.

Parks in Dumfries and Galloway are not just grass and paths. You can get so much more from your park –why not go for a jog or a cycle; or a relaxing walk with the dog or look at the wild flowers or enjoy the play equipment. There is something for everyone in your local park.

Love Parks Week is an opportunity to reflect on the fact that our parks will only survive if local communities demonstrate how much they value them and get involved.

Councillor John Martin, vice chairman of communities committee said:
“During love parks week, we are encouraging people to go and visit their local park – familiarise yourself with what is on your doorstep. We are lucky to have so many beautiful, open, green spaces here in Dumfries and Galloway. We want people to enjoy, take pride and fall in love with their local park.”
