Parks and green spaces
We are responsible for the upkeep and development of over 60 parks and green spaces.
We also help organise events, manage two allotment sites, look after children's play areas and more besides.
Extreme Weather and Parks
Whilst we always ensure our parks and open spaces are open right through the year, if we experience extreme weather conditions (e.g. heavy snowfall, high winds or severe rainfall) we might have to close all or part of a site, including toilets and playgrounds, but only as a very last resort. We'll always try and let people know if and when we need to do this and for how long closures remain in place, but please contact us to check if you're not sure a site is or might be closed.
