July 14th to 23rd marks Love Parks Week across the UK. East Cambridgeshire District Council is celebrating Love Parks week by unveiling an exciting addition to the play area at Ely Country Park.
To support the Keep Britain Tidy’s campaign, the council is encouraging residents to get out and enjoy the open spaces and see what their parks have to offer.
Ely Country Park is welcoming its newest addition of play equipment. Work is currently underway on the new multi-play ship and is expected to open during Love Parks Week.
There have also been two walks created to allow people to explore the city. These circular walks which are 1.1 and 1.6 miles long, encompass Jubilee Gardens, Ely Country Park and Ely Park. Information on the walks will be available online, within leaflet holders at Ely Country Park, and at the Tourist Information Centre
When asked about the campaign, Councillor David Ambrose Smith said: “Love Parks Week is a fantastic opportunity to get residents out and about exploring the best of East Cambridgeshire. We’re very excited to be marking the week with the big reveal of our multi-play ship and hope that this, alongside our suggested walking routes will encourage children and adults to make the most of their local area.”
Residents can be part of Love Parks Week by simply visiting their local park, taking a photo and sharing the reason why they love their park on social media by using the hashtag #LoveParks.
