Lancaster City Council is launching a new campaign to encourage people to use, and take pride in, their local park.
The aim of the Take Pride in Our Parks campaign is to encourage people to use their local park, take pride in its appearance and use its facilities.
It will be launched during Love Parks Week (27 July - 4 August) and there are lots of activities taking place (details on the calendar below).
The Friends of Ryelands Park will be helping to launch the campaign with a litter pick in the park on Thursday August 1, starting at 9.30am.
Dog wardens will also be handing out free dog poo bags during their regular patrols of our local parks during the week in a bid to reduce the amount of dog fouling which often blight our parks and open spaces. If you don’t manage to get one then bags are available from the Visitor Information Centres in Lancaster and Morecambe for a small charge.
If you want to join the campaign and take pride in your park there are a few simple things you can do:
