Banbury Town Council is celebrating “Love Parks Week” by encouraging us to use the town’s fantastic open spaces.

The national campaign runs from July 20 to Aug 5 and is organised by the environment charity Keep Britain Tidy.   It gives people across the country the chance to appreciate their wonderful green areas. 

Banbury has twelve neighbourhood parks, including People’s Park and Spiceball Park, plus 90 open spaces and more than 50 play and teenage areas including two new play facilities on Hanwell Fields.

Cllr Martin Phillips, chairman of Banbury Town Council’s general services committee, said: “The aim of Love Parks Week is to get as many people as possible, young and old, outdoors to take advantage of their local parks. Parks are excellent places for fresh air and to boost mental health. They are places for families to enjoy.

“Whether it’s picnicking with friends, pushing youngsters on playground swings or walking dogs, our parks are important amenities that give adults, children, and pets vital spaces to play, grow, and bond.

“This town is extremely fortunate to have such a choice of park facilities and Love Parks Week is an opportunity for us to encourage people to make good use of them.”
